Just visit, a true tribute to sacrifice. If you have any connection to our armed forces or police, or even a passing interest it is very moving.
We have only visited the National Memorial Arboretum twice - once in February 2010 and again last month. Just in that short time, it is obvious just how it is flourishing as the "special place honouring those who have served, and continue to serve, our nation .....". The trees have visibly grown larger and it is not hard to imagine... More
Have been meaning to visit here for some time. Lots to see, very interesting place. The memorials are not only for the armed services. There are memorials for civilians too. Also a place where you can see plaques on trees for babies/children who have passed away. I think anyone who visits here, and at some stage of the visit doesn't... More
An amazing site with so many things to see. A place of reflection and contemplation. Very moving to read all the names of people who gave their lives to their country in a variety of different wars and conflicts. Makes you appreciate how many people have lost their lives.
I go to the Arboretum regularly, on official business and for leisure. I never cease to be moved by the quiet dignity and the reverence shown by all visitors, of any age. Even new squaddies, "singing hymns in the key of grunt" catch on to the gratitude we must all show.
Everyone should take out time to visit this magnificent memorial to those that have served our country so magnificently and have made the ultimate sacrifice. Each memorial stone tells its own story and is a fascinating piece of ever changing history. All the staff are helpful and the grounds are manicured to the highest order. It is far from a... More
This is obviously a special place with a lot of interesting and informative memorials and beautiful grounds. The land train is excellent for those without good mobility and the provision of blankets on a chilly day was super. Felt there could have been a lot more information provided and the catering was really disappointing not up to the standard of... More
As a serving member this have got to be one of most dedicated arboretum. Even if you don't serve its an emotional day for all. I think the wall touches people the most, as there is still a whole section with no names on. (Makes you think). The gardens are stunning and well looked after. This is where the real... More
I only live 4 miles from the Arboretum, and have visited it many times. It is an incredibly special place, that never fails to move me at each visit. If you are planning a visit, you must include the 11.00am daily service in the chapel, and then allow yourself a good few hours to walk around the beautifully maintained grounds... More
