An entirely different yet nonetheless impressive memorial. Have a wander up to it and make sure you utilise the cafe to the rear - a rare experience. Yet another overtly sad and thought provoking place to come. Up the lane nearby there's a cemetery as...More

Beautiful peaceful Memorial! the location of the tower not far from The Thiepval Memorial is appropriate, staffed by Ulster volunteers they keep the grounds immaculate and also they run the tea rooms which are very welcome to thirsty visitors. I immediately spied a tea pot...More

Had a thoroughly enjoyable experience at this memorial to the 36th ulster division. The tower is kept in immaculate condition and the tour of the trenches was the best indicator of the life and hardship endured by the troops before they paid the supreme sacrifice...More

A lovely memorial, what more really needs to be said. The site is close to multiple cemeteries and the Thiepval Memorial, but take the time to get out and walk the grounds. If you like tea, you can get a pot of Builder's Tea in...More

The design of the Ulster Tower is in its design a fitting tribute to the men of Ulster who made the ultimate sacrifice. Being a smaller site it is perhaps more poignant

I came here on my own (Belfast born and bred) to see the memorial and learn about Ulster’s contribution to World War 1. The Ulster Tower is a stunning memorial to the 36th Ulster division and their sacrifice. The tour of Thiepval Wood (run by...More

A unique attraction on route to Thiepval, the grounds and layout are superb, the tower is very pretty and the memorial room inside is thought provoking.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your recent visit to the Ulster Memorial Tower and Thiepval Wood. Kieran is indeed a great guide and has a real passion for his work. Claire

The Ulster Memorial Tower recognises the losses from one of the Irish Regiments. It is a sad story. After early successes against the enemy, then continued to press the advantage only to be hit by their own artillery fire. They then retreated only to face...More

This is simply a memorial and is not interactive or spectacular. Good to include in your battle field tour but I felt the best thing about this place was that it had a coffee shop. Even that required cash.More

Thank you for visiting the Ulster Memorial Tower. Our national memorial was built in 1921 and was designed to be neither interactive or spectacular, but simply to commemorate the men of the 36th (Ulster) Division who had fought and died in the Battle of the...More

They are very close together. You can just turn up and walk round. There is a little cafe at the back of the Ulster Tower.

I'm really sorry, but I cannot answer your question. We travelled on an organised trip. However, if you contact Ted or his wife via the website, they will be happy to help. Sorry I can't do any better.
