About the rally

  • Discover the National Memorial Arboretum

  • Visit nearby Brewery

  • Plenty of nearby Restaurants

Join us for all or part of this Rally, we'll be based at Barton Marina a great location just 4 miles from the National Memorial Arboretum.

There is plenty to see in the local area. How about a visit to the National Brewery Centre, a walking trail at Lodge Hill Bluebells or simply relax and explore all Barton Marina has to offer.

The Marina which is described as a gem of a place is set in 90 acres of beautiful lakes and woodland, it is the perfect setting for pleasant walks and to spot a range of wildlife. Within the marina there are plenty of shops and restaurants to enjoy. One of these is the Waterfront pub/restaurant, located at the heart of the Marina it's a traditional British pub that serves good quality food. There are also several other places for you to discover including a Gallery of fine art, a Cinema, and a Café bar, all built in the same Victorian warehouse style.

For a donation, on the Saturday we plan to meet SAS veteran Mike Colton, who will give us a guided tour of the Allied Special Forces Memorial Grove within the Arboretum.
