The Arboretum is home to nearly 400 thought-provoking memorials, each with a story to be discovered. The memorials are diverse in nature, rich in symbolism and represent a broad population of society, from military associations and charities to the emergency services, fraternity groups and individuals. Each year new memorials are added so there’s always something new to see.
The Arboretum is a living growing tribute which contains more than 25,000 trees. All of the native tree species found in the United Kingdom can be found at the Arboretum, including a number of disease-resistant Elms.
The Millennium Chapel of Peace and Forgiveness can be found on Heroes’ Square close to the Remembrance Centre. It is the only place in the country where an Act of Remembrance is observed every day. The Act of Remembrance features the Last Post, a Silence and the Reveille, and takes place at 11am. The Chapel welcomes people of all faiths and none, and aims to provide a quiet space where everyone will feel comfortable. Space within the chapel is limited with seats being issued on a first-come, first-served basis. Please ensure you are seated for the service by 10.50am.
