This was a really meaningful ceremony and great to see under the perfect location. Just get there early and be prepared to hang around for an hour as it gets full.

A wonderful way to honor fallen heroes from WWI. The ceremony takes place every evening at 2000 (8PM) and lasts only a couple minutes. I recommend arriving early to get a good spot near the front. I arrived shortly after 730PM and there were already people gathering. Please be respectful and exercise silence throughout the ceremony. In large crowds there will inevitably be some disrespectful people, not only ruining the experience for others, but shamefully disrespecting the tribute being paid to our fellow war-fighters who died so that we may live.

During the Covid19 soft lock down period the Last Post Ceremony went on but was reduced to the basic traditional style with only one bugler. Having no attendants allowed or present under the gate, it was a very moving and solemn ceremony. It reminded me of the old days, with no traffic noice, no sound of people around and only one bugler playing the last post. Very, very moving and beautiful in it's simple version.

Although Ypres was in lockdown on the Saturday night to buglers did their sacred duty and played. It was a very poignant moment - all there were moved by the dedication of the Ypre Fire Brigade who have never missed a parade. Well done and thank you from the Australians

It is worth the visit for people who are related to the soldiers who were involved in the battlefield.
