I had no idea that we had an American Cemetery in the UK and having visited the cemeteries in Northern France, having found ourselves in Cambridge we decided to go here. Beautifully laid out. I liked the chapel which had some of the most amazing mosaics I have seen. It is so right that we remember these men that laid... More

A truly stunning and moving place to visit and pay respects. I wasn't expecting to be as moved as I was and spent a good proportion of my time weeping. It's a sight I'll never forget, and rightly so.

This was late December but the serenity of the place was overwhelming. Beautiful chapel, beautiful grounds. The site speaks for itself. Beautifully kept by the American Monument's Commission. The museum there is very in depth, informative, giving you a wider picture of the human stories behind the lives lost by American and Allied personnel in World War One and World... More

If you're around Cambridge and have a bit of time to spare try and stop by the cemetery. It's a beautiful tribute to Americans who gave everything during WWII. The white headstones are laid out in beautiful arced lines and the memorial wall to those who never returned is really quite an emotional sight. Always immaculately presented and always a... More

This war cemetery is well worth the visit if only to see how things should be done. The whole place is clean and tidy and very well maintained. It is very peaceful and has a solemn atmosphere with it. It is on the outskirts of Cambridge and is easily accessible by car or bus.

Excellent to visit. Make sure you visit the visitor centre first ( on far left ) before visiting the chapel and cemetery.
