About the event

GWC will be supporting and attending this year’s Ride to the Wall, if you haven’t been before let me tell you a little bit more about it.

RTTW is a unique motorcycling event which gives motorcyclists an opportunity to gather together at a place of remembrance, to pay their respects to our serving and fallen service men and women and in doing so, raise funds solely for the purpose of perpetuating their memory and recognising the sacrifice made.

The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK's year-round centre of 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 30,000 maturing trees over 300 memorials, it is a beautiful and lasting tribute to those who serve their country or who have died in conflict.

The Arboretum 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 present day.

Following an £8 million redevelopment campaign, the new Remembrance Centre is now open. Featuring three new exhibition galleries, larger restaurant and shop, separate coffee shop and a beautiful cloistered courtyard with garden, the new centre will transform the experience of our many visitors.
