I don't really know how to review a place like this - but I definitely recommend it! I find it difficult to review because I find it difficult to describe the feeling you get when you stand there and think about the history of the place... incredible, though an understatement, I suppose will do.

Visiting this area to see where a special grandfather had fought and was injured and sadly died later.

Nice little café just next to the actually hill. So worth a visit if you are in need of some refreshments. The hill it self is worth a visit for the history of the tunnels. & the battle.. & as an added bonus watch beneath Hill 60 film a good film & it gets you in the mode for this... More

This is a difficult review. It is hard to be critical of a site where so many soldiers are buried, but as a group we all left without really knowing, or understanding the horrors or the reasons for what had happened here 100 years ago. Today Hill 60 is a pleasant walk through a small wooded area surrounded by a... More

Lovely area preserved much as it was at the end of the war. The massive destructive power is clear to see. They authroities look to be constructing a pathway around the site to limit access and hence damage to the site. The svisit across the railway to the caterpillar crater is not well posted, but reasonabley easy to find.

It is moving to realize that this friendly hill actually is the burial ground of hundreds of WW1 soldiers who stayed underground in the strongholds.

After we parked a half a mile away and walked in (due to no public parking) this site was quite disappointing. The whole area is a construction zone, but from what I can tell the construction will not have much to do with the site. The site is really nothing more than an overgrown walkway with a pillbox and a... More

A stark reminder of what happened during the First World War and what a terrible loss of life that took place in the fields of Flanders.
