I've only visited this site once but must say it was remarkable. To stand back and imagin the death and bravery that took place on the very spot you are standing on is something I hope we never have to witness ever again.

Apart from the various memorials this site has been left in its original state since the war. You can see the undulations of the ground from trenches and missile impacts and there is a broken land mine shell in one crater. It commemorates the events of 1917 and sadly is destined to be a tourist attraction in 2017. A new... More

A small museum and cafe. Close to Canadian memorial. Outside are the trenches were kids can climb and go through tunnels. VERY muddy and wet probably most of the year.....gives you a perspective of what it may have been like in 1914-18. Take spare shoes / boots if you want to go into trenches and tunnels.

An untouched terrain that illustrates the trenches and the importance of this area. Well worth a visit. Quite moving and a fitting tribute.

Hill 60 will give you an insight into how hard the fight would have been to take a prominent position overlooking the flat lands below, the area is owned by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and has been left exactly as it was at the end of the war complete with mine craters and shell holes. This place is a... More

And just be warned here, either bring a good guide book, or come with a small tour company as we did with "Flanders Battlefield Tours" and along with a professional guide called Jacques, who was a wealth of information and also brought the entire place to life saving me the hassle of having to stop and read a book every...

Amazing story. Hard to appreciate what occurred for those involved. Our guide was incredibly knowledgable (Jack from Battlefield Tours), making the trip incredibly worthwhile.

A stunning visual display at the very modern museum and well explained by local guides- although I did have to remind him to stop saying the English Army and refer to US as the allies!
