If you like your history then this is a lovely place to visit. Much smaller than i imagined. I know it sounds strange, but it is far more educational than what you learn at school.

This fairly small cemetery is found easily by walking south along the ramparts of Ypres from the Menin Gate through pleasant wooded shady grounds. A place to be quiet and thoughtful about the huge sacrifices made 100 years ago by mainly very young men.
