This is such a beautiful and interesting church to visit. It is very close to the centre of Ypres and worth the few minutes walk. The church is full of plaques in remembrance of various regiments and people that fought in world war 1. Well worth a visit.

This is an unexpected gem with memorial plaques from many schools and institutions in the UK lining the walls. It is a very beautiful English style church that serves as a striking and peaceful memorial to those who fell and stayed behind.

After the War had ended, a great many British servicemen and civil servants remained behind in Ypres to help clear up the mess, begin work on creating the cemeteries and creating the memorials. This church was built to give them a place of Anglican worship. The inside of the church is adorned with the coats of arms of the many... More

In an area full of excellent memorials, this is one of the best. The plaques commemorating the sacrifice of former pupils from schools throughout the UK was particularly poignant.

Situated behind the Cathedral in Ypres this small Church was built was built to commemorate over 500,000 British and Commonwealth troops, who had died in the three battles fought for the Ypres Salient. Every chair has a kneeling cushion which has been carefully embroidered with the colours and badges of each English regiment who fought in the war. Many chairs... More

a small church, overlooked by St james church and the seminary. this is the church built by the war graves commission in rememberence of the soldiers killed in the first world war. although not as elaborate as many of the other church`s. its a small gem, and well worth the visit.

Visited here not realising how beautiful it would be inside.We were very surprised when we went inside as from the outside it looks like just another church. Don't just walk past as we had done a number of times.Go inside and look around. If there had been a service during our visit we would have attended even though we are... More

A lovely church with a real home feel about it. The tapestry pillows and names of the British, Scotts and Irish that lost their lives defending Leper was lovely and a real presence could be felt in this smaller church by comparison to the huge cathedrals.

Came across St George's after visiting the cathedral. St George's was by far the better experience if you are a UK traveller wishing to pay homage. Unassuming, but lovely memorial.
