When visiting a cemetery such as this it is all to easy to look at the graves of the famous and those awarded medals of valour. But there are 1800 stories of bravery here and it's an amazing place to visit and see how young so many were who made such a huge sacrifice for our freedom. When I saw... More

Such an impressive place. I used to come here every September when I was in primary school to lay flowers at the graves. It has made an impression on me as a kid and it still does after all these years!

My husnabd's uncle lies here. He was a Para and KIA during Operation Market Garden. This cemetery is immaculate, very peaceful and certainly gives us a lot to be thankful for. If you visit in september try to take part in the service of thanks, a very moving experience to say the least!

The Airborne Cemetery has the graves of 1745 allied soldiers - mostly from England and Poland and a few here and there from Canada. Mixed in between all of these are the graves of unknown soldiers. These soldiers fought in a major battle in Arnhem near the end of WWII. Visit the Airborne Museum for the history of this battle.... More

I've visited here twice over the last couple of decades (my father in law was an Arnhem veteran who thankfully survived the battle). If you are in the area, please visit and spend some time here to reflect on the cost of freedom.
