Visited here in late October with my wife as we were staying in Bruges. Been a few times before, but never fails to have an effect. Always immaculate (unlike the behaviour of some who visit), on this occasion it was relatively empty.

Tyne Cot Cemetery is definitely a must see when visiting Ypres. So big, so beautiful and so overwhelming. Seeing all those (mostly unknown) graves it is hard not to contemplate the futility of war. So many lives lost and for what... nothing basically.

There is not a lot to say about this very quiet, dignified last resting place for so many young men. It is thoroughly overwhelming as you wander amongst the graves and read some of the names on the Memorial and realise that there are very...More

My mouth dropped as I entered the gates of this Cemetery. The shock of seeing so many graves in one place very often with the notation “known only to god” inscribed on the stone. A truly devasting reminder of the tradegy and hopelessness of war....More

Found our visit to Tyne Cot an incredibly moving experience - the sheer scale of the monuments and the graves lovingly tended are an incredible sight. Welcome free cuppa in the Car Park.

One of the most moving and haunting places on earth. After 100 years since the end of WW1 these graves still bring a person to tears whether or not there is a family member buried or inscribed on the walls here. During my visit, I...More

This is a very bifurcated memorial. The cemetery and memorial wall to the dead who could not be identified is understated but powerful in its simplicity. I was there on 10th November and the number of visitors searching for the names of their relatives was...More
