We arrived at this memorial via our sightseeing bus and decided to stay longer than planned thanks to the evocative introductory tour given by the friendly on-site guide. She described what life was like for the U.S. servicemen and servicewomen who were stationed near Cambridge during WWII and explained the history of the cemetery. We took a short tour of... More

Was amazed to see the size of this cemetery with plenty of information available in the Visitors Center. The chapel is a wonderful memorial. Makes you realise the sacrifice

This place is so serene, the grounds are immaculate and despite being quite close to a busy road it is very peaceful, the wall with the names of all those young servicemen with no known grave is truly beautiful and makes you realise what a huge sacrifice they made for us. I understand that sometimes there are days with no... More

This is a really lovely place to visit, it's a good place for family and interesting to take kids too. It's well laid out but it's a bit difficult to get to without a car. You can get to it on the park and ride though

Impressively laid out cemetery to the west of Cambridge. Various US personnel interred here. Immaculately laid out with a visitors centre and public loos. Car parking on site and accessible to those with mobility issues. Free entry. Interesting information in the visitors centre. Would highly recommend an hour or two here.

We took the Hop on Hop off bus right to the front door. The interior displays were well done. Unfortunately we could not spend adequate time for this. The cemetery itself is beautiful, well cared for and moving. While living in Cambridge I learned much about the presence of our WWII pilots presence in the UK. There is a chapel... More

This cemetery pays a good amount of respect to American servicemembers who gave their lives to the Second World War. There is a wonderful little chapel near the rear, and a tasteful and solemn fountain where one can stand and reflect upon the carnage these men must have faced. Graves are well kept and immaculately organized; there is a registrar... More

Beautiful monument to WW II era American soldiers. Full of history. Be sure to visit the Imperial War Museum down the road, too.
