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. It is a living and lasting memorial.
Since planting began in 1997, the National Memorial Arboretum has been a special place honouring those who have served, and continue to serve, our nation in many different ways.
The Arboretum was officially opened to the public in May 2001.
The Julia and Hans Rausing Trust provided a donation towards the building of a new visitors' centre.
