The National Memorial Arboretum

The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK’s year-round centre of Remembrance; a spiritually uplifting place which honours the fallen, recognises service and sacrifice, and fosters pride in our country.

The Arboretum is part of The Royal British Legion family of charities. It employs 50 staff and has over 150 volunteers. Sited in the heart of the Nation, with 50,000 maturing trees and over 200 memorials, it is a beautiful and lasting tribute to those who serve their country, die in conflict or have a special reason for being remembered.

Visitors from all walks of life number around 300,000 per year, including Service personnel, veterans, students of all ages, groups and individuals. Over 200 special events are held annually. The Act of Remembrance, including a Silence, is observed daily in the Millennium Chapel.
