© National Memorial Arboretum
- The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK’s year-round Centre for 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. Sited in the heart of the Nation, with 50,000 maturing trees and nearly 300 memorials, it is a beautiful and lasting tribute to those who serve their country or who have died in conflict. The Arboretum is situated on land gifted by Lafarge Tarmac and is home to the striking Armed Forces Memorial which commemorates those who have been killed on duty or as a result of terrorism from the end of the Second World War to the current conflict in Afghanistan.
