Went to see this. It is amazing looking at the number of crosses and all the names on the wall. Was expecting to have more factual stuff but only stayed half hour. Worth the drive just to see the crosses

They have what I understood to be, a relatively new visitor’s centre which was full of interesting... More

Drive into Cambridge on the way to the park & rides scheme and no doubt you have seen the US flag flying on your left as you go about your journey.

This is such a tranquil beautiful place. The visitors center is done very well. The chapel is wonderful with beautiful tile work. You can hear chapel bells playing on the hour outside as you walked around. Highly recommend!

Well worth a visit. This is beautifully maintained and kept and is in a lovely location. Can be visited as one of the stops on the 'hop on hop off bus'.

Was quite impressing. Out of the city but worth a visit absolutely. I would always advice to take the tour as this is a hop on and off therefore more accessible.
