“Leaves an impression”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I have taken many school groups to this cemetery. It leaves an impact on nearly all the children. The cemetery is vast, and gives an idea of the extent of destruction. About 11000 soldiers are buried here, including a holder of the Victoria Cross. The graves are kept beautifully. Well worth a visit. Easy to park on either side of the road.
