We spent 2 hours there and it was breathtaking. As a British civilian employee of the US Army at Burtonwood in the UK for 18 years up to 1993 I was used to the American mannerisms and way of life, so the great tranquility and serenity of this cemetery caught me unawares. The layout and neatness of the whole place... More

Even though we don't have anyone buried here, it is worthy of a visit to pay your respects such a beautiful resting place.

This is one of the largest American overseas military cemeteries in the world, and it is a beautiful one. It was given to the U.S. in perpetuity by the University of Cambridge to bury American war dead. All but two of the U.S. servicemen interred there are from WWII. For the most part, those interred at Cambridge died in air... More

Beautifully designed and well maintained final resting place for too many young Americans who died in European battles during WWII. Visit with kleenex as you will find yourself very moved.

A superb memorial to our great allies. Beautifully maintained with superb information panels in the visitors centre and an amazing graphic, three dimensional map in the chapel.

The Americans know how to handle such a place with great respect, sensitivity and pride. One of my favourite places to visit in Cambridge.

This is an honourable American cemetery and memorial of those lost WWII across British Isles ad Pacific. It is the only WW{{ American military cemetery in the United Kingdom.

This cemetery is so worth a visit, it's so well looked after and I believe the 5000 names on the wall are soldiers who were killed and never found or missing in action. Also very sad when you read some of the stones and notice how close they were to the end of the war when they lost their lives.

It is very easy to get to on the outskirt of Cambridge. Very peaceful, and well kept. Enough information, but not not a Museum. A credit to those who made it and keep it. A worthy tribute to those who died.
