A wonderful place. Well maintained. Old old memorial headstones, Lovely trees and shrubs. It seats on a hill with one of the Wiltshire Downs white horses in the distance. In the center is a massive Cedar of Lebonon Tree. And before it is the Remembrance garden. My father was in the 452 Quarter Master Co. Stationed in Bassett during WW2.... More

Any Garden of Remembrance should be maintained in tip top condition. This was is not. It is drab and requires a facelift. Located within the older part of the main town cemetery, the local council and RBL need to get together and sort this particularly given the towns contributions to military repatriations.

I have spent almost a year trying to get Trip Advisor to correct this listing and move one of the reviews. I most have probably posted corrections over 20 times! I hope this new review will sort this out once and for all. This listing is for the Garden of Remembrance in Royal Wootton Bassett. The address is Wootton Bassett... More

Visited in May 2013, my husband was looking forward to visiting the garden of remembrance especially as his is ex army but we were very disappointed as there was very little here. I assume if you visit in November this will be a different story but would have liked there to have been more in the way of flowers etc

Missed the opening ceremony on 09/11/12, but went on 16/11/12. There is a moving, short last post & 2 minute silence at 2pm every day. Crosses are laid out aphabetically in plots and there is a very moving, special section for all those killed in Afghanistan, where relatives have put photos on the crosses - very moving. The closing ceremony... More
