The appalling extent of this superbly manicured place of remembrance is, and will remain, a statement to the folly of War. I defy you to go, sit or wander about and not have some tears in your eyes. Please also remember for every stone, there is or was a whole family grieving for their lost one. A salutary experience made... More

We took an open top tour of Cambridge, visiting the Colleges and also out as far as Madingley. Sadly we did not have enough time to stop and give this area the attention it fittingly deserves, but I feel I owe it to all the people laid to rest there, another visit when I can pay my respects properly.

Difficult to write a review of such a place as this. Over 3,000 graves laid in immaculate curves, this is a very peaceful and beatiful place to visit.

Stopped at the memorial with a group of 36 teenagers. The guide was great with the group being able to bring home the reality of the war and the significance of the memorial. A beautiful place that is well kept and a fitting memorial to those who now rest here.

My wife and I visited here during our city break in Cambridge. Truly stunning and fitting memorial to our American allies who gave their lives during the Second World War. Sadly, most died during the last 2 years of the war. The cemetery is impeccably maintained. There is a visitor centre with a short 8 minutes) and very moving film,... More

I've visited a number of times and the visitor center is a great addition as it helps explain not only more about the war, but also about the people that are buried and remembered there. Some days feature tours and talks but there is also a new mobile application that is well worth a download to assist your exploration of... More

Very nice memorial remembering the US soldiers who fought in WWII. The visitors center was really well done and the provided a ton of information, stories of soldiers, and history. A worthwhile stop on the way to Cambridge.

The visitors centre was really modern and had a lot of information about US military personnel station in Cambridge during WWII. The cemetery offers beautiful views all the way to Ely on a clear day, you can even make out the cathedral on the horizon. Well worth taking the tourist bus out there.

its a memorial and is beautifully laid out and manicured. Parking at the rear. Seats to sit and contemplate and look across unspoilt fields. Fly by's happen on US holidays
