National Memorial ArboretumView map
A living tribute to the fallen
adly, the 20th and 21st centuries have been blighted with wars, with Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Afghanistan, and the Iraq Wars among others claiming the lives of servicemen and women.
With 160 memorials and specially selected trees from across the world, the National Memorial Arboretum is a fitting tribute to all those that have died in conflict since the Second World War.
Some people will visit the Arboretum to pay tribute to friends and family that have lost their lives for our country; the dedicated memorials allow you to pay your personal respect.
Amongst the memorials are the Basra Memorial Wall, that commemorates the personnel who died in combat operations in Iraq, and the architecturally impressive Armed Forces Memorial.
These memorials are set in 150 acres of ground and are surrounded by a remarkable collection of over 50,000 trees. The Arboretum is a living tribute to all those that have made sacrifices.
And it doesn’t matter if you’ve made the journey to remember loved ones or just want to walk around an area of natural beauty - the woodlands provide an atmosphere conducive to quiet reflection.
