Not so easy to find, if you find the front of the nearby Cathedral walk to the end of the square & St George's is on the corner opposite the theatre. Do look at the hand made cushions on the chairs representing so many regiments, very impressive and brass plates on the walls.

This church contains many tributes to the fallen from regiments and remembrances from many schools. It is a peaceful place, and not gloomy.

A small Anglican church almost opposite the Cathedral. It is dedicated to those that fell in The Great War. The walls are covered with brass memorial plaques. Each chair is likewise adorned and all the windows and banners commemorate specific losses. Well worth a short diversion.

This is a beautiful small Anglican Memorial Church behind the Cloth Hall and the Market Square in Ypres. It is full of small memorial brass plates and reminders of the Great War and a "must visit" for pilgrims and visitors to the battlefield.

A moving collection of regimental names and artefacts adorn this traditional English style church. A small congregation does its best to keep it up and running

This was recommended by a friend otherwise we may have missed it. It is not like a normal church - it is light and airy and tells many stories.

Amazing little gem, been to Ypres before and never knew this existed, but I will make sure that I let everyone know about the church, so much history and memories. Make sure you pay a visit.
