National Memorial Arboretum

A unique and beautiful place that is dedicated to ensuring that the unique contribution of those that served and sacrificed is never forgotten. To ensure that the baton of Remembrance is passed on through generations. And created to provide a year round outdoor space where people can celebrate lives lived and commemorate lives lost.

Enjoy the stunning tranquility and 150 acres of parks of the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, the perfect place to take time out to remember those we miss.


The Arboretum welcomes over 300,000 visitors a year.  Here you can discover over 400 memorials nestled amongst some 25,000 trees. There are wonderful trails and riverside walks. Visitors have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of daily activities: guided walks, land train tours, memorial talks, exhibitions and buggy tours.

The park is also a fantastic venue for around 250 events each year. These range from small intimate services of Remembrance to the larger global events such as Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday, but also a fun summer proms and celebration of Armed Forces Day.
