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.

I have visited many war graves both in this country and overseas and this one like all the British war graves is kept in excellent condition. There is a genuine air of peace within the grounds.

Like: easy access, not far off the M11 near Cambridge. Immaculately kept ground for Americans serving in WWII. Beautiful and peaceful chapel with lovely commemorative stained glass windows. Dislike: there is nothing you won't like about the American Memorial Garden

Not greatly advertised but well worth a visit. Just outside the city centre, set in open countryside, the final resting place for c3800 souls with c6000 remembered on the wall of the missing. Nice visitor centre plus toilets

Well worth travelling out of the city centre to see this war cemetery. The information and maps help to explain why American servicemen found their last resting place here

We visited the American Cemetery as part of Cambridge Open Top Bus tour. The place was immaculate & peaceful. The information in the rooms was laid out beautifully and the chapel was out of this world. I would thoroughly recommend this as a place to visit.
