The Remembrance Centre features exhibition spaces, Gift Shop and restaurant. From here the stunning Boyes Garden leads visitors out into the site.
There’s a story behind each of the thought-provoking memorials – each a work of art in itself. Take a guided tour or listen to a talk and be enthralled as the stories really come to life.
The Arboretum is a wonderful place to visit for a calm, peaceful walk through the beautiful woodland. Wander down avenues remembering those who gave their lives, or just enjoy the variety of landscapes and gardens.
