The site includes the iconic Armed Forces Memorial, a lasting tribute to those in the Armed Forces who have lost their lives in the service of their country. Recent multi-million pound investments have doubled the size of the extensive visitor and learning facilities and created a brand new events facility for public and private use with a banqueting capacity of over 300. The Arboretum now welcomes over 300,000 visitors each year, hosts over 200 events and engages with around 16,000 student visitors. The centre is part of The Royal British Legion
