A very humbling experience to visit a place that honours 4000 of the 400,000 Americans that died during WW2 defending the western world against tyranny. We came out feeling very emotional. A very moving experience. God bless America!

This is a must to visit while in Cambridge. The hop on hop off bus stops here. It is so well kept, and very peaceful. There are 3800 graves and over 5000 names on a wall of Americans who helped the allies in the war, and were lost, but not found. There is a wonderful visitor centre as well.

Indescribably moving. One of the best monuments of honor to American soldiers, sailors, and airmen. Must be seen

This is a wonderful place of honor for those who served in WWII and gave their lives for the freedom that we have!! I am so pleased we stopped here and so pleased that England gave America this cemetery and memorial for those who deserved it most!!

I've visited here a number of times in the past and always found it a great experience, the chapel is stunning and the whole setting is moving. Recent improvements have brought a much improved visitor centre which you could easily spend hours reading the information and watching videos along with the great interactive touch screen displays. I called in there... More

The cemetery is beautifully laid out, and cared for. It is a very powerful tribute to the fallen. There is a bus service that drops/collects right outside the cemetery.

This place is so quiet, serene and profoundly moving. Just looking at all those graves and the names on the wall is a humbling experience. One which moved me beyond words. If you are in the area you really have to pay your respects. Their sacrifice was hugh.

My husband and I were staying in a nearby B and B and came across this cemetary by accident and we were so glad we did. It is so beautifully kept and with very interesting displays with information about all the battles fought in WW2. When we first walked through the gates and saw the rows and rows of white... More
