The cemetery is beautifully maintained and is a place with a real feeling of tranquility. The rows and rows of headstones commemorating the soldiers who lost their lives make you stop and think. It is a very moving place, and so sad to see that many of the soldiers killed were in their teens or early twenties.

You must complete the story after visiting the Airbourne Museum and go to the cemetery. Beautifully kept and humbling. Makes you appreciate the reality of war.

After the Airborne museum, you must visit the Airborne Cemetery. It is a tranquil place for reflection and remembrance. Many of these guys that gave their life for our freedom ware so incredible young.

Beautifully kept - everyone should go and just look at all those headstones. Incredibly moving, more so if you have a family member there. A visit might make politicians of all nations less inclined to send others to war while they stay safe at home.

As always, an immaculately kept cemetery. Very sad to think of all those lost lives and many so very young. As previously mentioned, it is about a 25 minute walk from the Airborne museum.

Beautiful part of the country. A few visitors there at the same time as us from Canada and America. Very interesting to read the short history of some of the military buried there including two or three that won the VC. Just a short walk from the airborne museum
