There is no drama or attraction here, just a beautifully maintained place for those to visit and remember or gain a better understanding of the "why", "when" and... More

Stopped here on the way to Cambridge. We are Americans who are living in the UK. We have no personal experience of loss during the war, but none the less, it was a very emotional visit.

We attended the memorial day service which was a very moving ceremony. The new visitor centre is extremely well planned and the staff could not be more helpfull.

Being expats from the US, visiting the Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial on the US Memorial Day was a an honor. It is a beautiful location that is extremely well done and the visitor center was wonderful and interesting - it felt so personal to read the stories of some of the service men and women who were buried there...

The new visitor centre adds a great deal to the experience, outlining the involvement and hostory of American forces in Europe in WW2. It underlines the sacrifice made by those remembered in the surrounding acres of tombstones

like all US military cemeteries overseas, the setting is magnificent and the grounds are meticulously maintained. There are more names on the memorial wall for those whose bodies were never recovered than there are graves. Well worth the visit.

A very moving experience - a wall of the names of the fallen and the serried ranks of memorial stones remind the visitor how many US men and women lost their lives in the fight to ensure freedom. A hillside location with a fine view

It is very moving and makes one realise what a sacrifice these young men made to ensure our freedom from a monstrous evil.
