Memorial church on the market square

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

This is a beautiful church filled with items donated by so many regiments commemorating the war and acknowledging those that fought for the cause

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.

Do you World War 1 tours and then spend some time here to reflect on what you have seen, just a beautiful place and very poignant. A must visit.

An unexpected surprise, I have been to Ypres several times but have never visited this church before. The atmosphere was so peaceful and also very thought provoking, so many plaques commemorating not only regiments but former pupils of schools across Great Britain who lost their lives. For example my husband is originally from Bury in Lancashire and there is a... More

Wanted to go here to see all the plaques and dedications to the various regiments before attending the Last Post Ceremony. Lovely little church, crammed full of dedications to individuals and regiments. A very moving tribute to many fallen servicemen. Well worth a visit.
