We live within 3 miles of this memorial place. The new visitor centre is splendid, the grounds and all areas are pristine with many new items added to the centre. Well worth a visit

This was one of the stops on the Hop On/Hop Off bus in Cambridge, England. It is well worth getting off the bus and spending time here since the bus makes a continuous loop route. The Cemetary was beautifully kept and very quiet and solemn. In addition to the graves of servicemen and women, there is also a wall commerating... More

We had planned to spend only 30 minutes at the Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial on our way out of town, but we stayed 2 hours. What a fascinating, humbling place! Do not skip the video presentations and other visual media in the newly constructed Visitor Centre. The gentleman behind the desk there was clearly a devoted history buff, and... More

Wonderful but moving experience with a glorious chapel of exceptional beauty. It reminds you of the horror of war and the terrible slaughter of people. Tragic yet uplifting.

If you are visiting Cambridge you must make time to visit. It is the only Cemetery to USA forces in England, it is beautiful, moving, and very emotional. Make sure you visit the Chapel, and allow at least an hour for the new visitor centre (perhaps Center!), it is highly educational and worth the time.

Wanted to go for a while and the wait was worth it. Could spend hours in the visitors centre and brought me to tears at one stage. Will visit again.

A very peaceful and respectful place where over 3000 American service men,women and cilivians are laid to rest, + over 5000 names on the wall of rememberance. Visitors centre puts faces to names. Beautifully maintained.
