We went on a guided tour of the cemetery and found it really interesting. The guide explained the names on the wall and about all the gravestones. The cemetery is kept in excellent condition and the staff/volunteers are friendly and knowledgeable.

The scale of the cemetery and the views from it are particularly good. The museum is interesting but perhaps should also explain why America entered the war so late.

Very moving. The cemetery is laid out and looked after to perfection. The staff which are possibly volunteers are courteous and knowledgeable able those buried and remembered.

Only when you visit, do you see what more than 3000 war graves look like, it is a very emotional experience in an impeccably kept Cemetery, brings home just how awful war is. Only by going are you really going to understand and appreciate this place.

So well planned out and a great history lesson about the world war in the exhibition. The grounds are peaceful and a wonderful tribute to the men that lost their lives. So pleased that we got off the sightseeing bus to explore.

This is a unique cemetery in the British Isles. It is the burial place for nearly 3,000 men an women from a range of ranks and disciplines that lost their lives during the Second World War. Being Irish I’ve very rarely seen the white gravestones, that line the cemetery. It’s supported by the American trust, there’s no charge for entry... More

A must-see for American tourists visiting the area, I would rate this alongside Pearl Harbour in terms of impact and ability to convey the magnitude of WWII.

The cemetery is very well taken care of, beautifully designed. It's a very moving site all of the crosses, the list of names in stone. We stayed about an hour. I'd recommend it to anyone passing by the area.

The American Cemetery is a beautiful memorial to the American troops who died in World War II, which is set in the tranquil countryside just outside the city. Beautiful views across towards Ely.
