“British War Cemetery , Bayeux,France”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

I have visited other war cemeteries but this one is especially poignant. The visitors book and grave stones have some especially sad comments. I found a reference to someone who had been killed on D-Day from the same street as I grew up in which was a real shock. The remarks from French children were extremely uplifting.

“Moving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is a moving place to wander thru. There are several plaques and places to stop and sit. The guys in our group really appreciated seeing the tanks.

“Everyone should visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Not the first time I've walked around a war cemetery, but every time I do I feel so humble. So many young lives in such a short duration of time. Every teenager should visit a grave such as this to realise how lucky they are. This cemetery is amazing so well looked after, the local people do a fantastic job at keeping them lovely.

It is a nice place where you can find time to think and commenmorate those who fought in the war to liberate others.
