Whilst I was only visiting for approximately 20-30 minutes, it is a beautiful place where those can pay their respects, it's very quiet and peaceful. The grounds are kept immaculately clean and are breathtaking. There's a visitors centre however I didn't go inside therefore I cannot comment on such. The car park is large and there's a lot of room.... More

If you ever think you are hard done by, visit the Cemetery and read about the sacrifice of so many young men. You can not help but to feel total respect for the place and the service personnel who gave their lives. A place of peace and they deserve it...

Wanted to visit to "pay my respects". Was beautifully presented and immaculately kept. Lots of personal stories. The scale of sacrifice of US military and civilians who'd been based in the UK during WWII really makes you stop and think. My biggest take-away from my visit was the sheer number of names recorded on a beautiful stone wall - these... More

I visited this Memorial Cemetery and felt truly humbled by what I experienced, the Cemetery is fantastically well set out and there's a memorial Chapel come information centre showing the theatre of war that America was involved in mainly in WW2 a truly amazing visit, highly recommended to all mot just our American cousins and allies.

The American Cemetry is well worth a visit. It is out of town but to pay your respects it is worth taking the trip out towards Madingly park and ride.

The American cemetery is just unbelievable and is kept to a standard that honor’s the generation that gave their lives. Visit the visitors centre first so that you get an understanding of the layout and history, you will be moved by the stories. The whole area is a fitting tribute to the Americans that gave their lives in the war... More

Have marked the Cambridge American war cemetery at Madingley as excellent but not sure if you should mark such a place as this, but it is truly an inspiring place and stops and makes you think of the ultimate sacrifice paid by a group of young people for the other side of the world. The wall of names is sadly... More
