The actual war ground has been preserved giving visitors an insight into the terribly difficult conditions that would have been experienced. Make sure to see the nearby crater.

The new paths make the viewing of the site easier. One can leave these and view the bunkers and fields if one wishes. The site is one of the few places left where the ground is as it was at the end of the war. TIP: If you have been before there is a new car park TIP: You can... More

Well laid out with lots of historic artifacts and films - well worth a visit to get a sense of the scale and size of the local battles and the whole WW1 historic position

Reading the history of some of the exploits of WW1 doesn't prepare you for seeing the sites. This was such an important place and yet it was much smaller than I expected. The fact that the road local and houses are up close adds to the sensation that the place is quite small. Very glad we visited the site nonetheless

The sunny day turned sombre as we drove from Tyne Cot up the man-made Hill 90 to view the woods and, within them, the gouged hole forming a deep crater brimming with dark water. This land was riddled with networks of tunnels excavated by both German and Allied armies. The French held the hill at the start of WWI. The... More

One has to actually walk in those 100 yr old trenches to appreciate the enormity of the sacrifices those soldiers made for us and our freedom. Well worth the 5 euro admission Good selection of artifacts in the museum part too

This site requires little interpretation just a bit of imagination. Walk around it and imagine what life must have been like before, during and after the mine was detonated.

One of the areas recognised by Australians due to the Will Davies book Beneath Hill 60 and the Australian tunnellers that set the mine that when set off was felt in London. New walking boardwalk provides acces to all travellers as you go into the massive crater left. Remembering this is also a memorial due to the numerous soldiers still... More

Hill 60 is a great place to understand a lessor known aspect of WW1 that is the tunneling war. When you drive there you have to go past the memorials before you come to a small carpark. There is a wooden walkway but you have to walk to the left you will see a dirt path this will take you... More
