Nice little church to visit if you are in the area, but don't make a special trip if you are short of time as there are plenty of other better attractions/memorial to the war

Lovely peaceful church, to reflect on the soldiers and regiments who fought and died during WWI. The church has various plaques and regimental pew cushions of units who fought during the wars. Lovely church and stained glass. Worth a visit, serene and peaceful church.

Just behind the famous cloth hall of Ypres you will find this impressive cathedral with it's 100 meters high tower, rebuilt after the first WW on the remnants of the original church.

This pretty church is a memorial to (mainly) the schoolboys and old boys from Britain's big schools who fought and died in the Ypres Salient. You'll see plaques from schools including Wellington, Eton and others. When these schoolboys joined up, they often joined as Officers, and had an average life of about 6 weeks on the frontline before being killed.... More

This church was built specifically to provide a place for the families of Commonwealth fallen to come and remember their lost sons and fathers. Inside is full of wall plaques, pew covers etc that commemorate the various regiments. Don't miss it.

Just a short stroll from the main square in Ypres is this quiet church steeped in history. Seeing the different plaques, pew cushions and other memorials is pretty poignant but slightly different from some of the museums, cemeteries. Worth a visit when in Ypres.

A great place to visit. Always special and moving. Recommended. My school, Queen Mary's Grammar School, Walsall, has a memorial plaque in the church which I always make a point of visiting every time I am in the town. Always worth a visit for anyone in the town.
