Well worth a visit. This is beautifully maintained and kept and is in a lovely location. Can be visited as one of the stops on the 'hop on hop off bus'.

Was quite impressing. Out of the city but worth a visit absolutely. I would always advice to take the tour as this is a hop on and off therefore more accessible.

Just a short drive out of the lovely city of Cambridge, the American cemetery is situated in a beautiful spot, with far reaching views in both directions. Beautifully landscaped - its avenues of gnarled leafless trees as enchanting in winter as they must be when in leaf - the vista of curved rows of immaculate white crosses and stars of... More

Of course, this can never be treated as a tourist site, but a trip here is a must. The visitor centre is excellent.

The exhibition is very well done, children of 9 and 11 spent more than an hour reading many of the personal stories.

Just like you see on TV. Gets the mind thinking. Visitor centre is hidden a bit and we ended up going there last but it doesn't make any difference.

My son and I visited the cemetery during a quiet weekday. It has recently been given a renovation and it has made a difference. There is ample, convenient parking outside of the cemetery. The cemetery itself is immaculate. The graves and the reflection pool are very well kept. The memorial is very ornate and has a very detailed map showing... More

I visited last week as part of a small group carrying out a site visit for a larger group visit planned for later in the Spring. I was not expecting to be able to spend so much time there. The guide that showed us round gave us excellent information and was happy to answer all our questions. She was able... More

This cemetery is well worth the visit. The whole place is clean and tidy and very well maintained and is free. There is big car park as well in front of it. Start with visiting a separate visitors centre which is on the left if you entry through the main entrance. It is definitely worth a visit and gives you... More
