Firstly the town of Ypres is such a beautiful place you will love it. We stayed there for two days to explore the town and visit the Menin Gate and whiteness the last post ceremony which takes place every night. Truly moving and what a beautiful memorial to the missing. I will never forget it.

I have been here several times and it never ceases to move me. Even in the middle of the day, when the sun is shining, it brings a chill to the soul to see the names of so many who were lost in battle. Not only a fitting tribute, but also very informative, with lots of displays explaining the context of the names.

Even 102 years after and with Corona social distancing, it remains a moving ceremony. Get there on time though (at least 1/2 hour before) to get a good view.

Obviously a must-do. For best view without arriving an hour before, stand on the outside of the town walls and look back in - you’re high enough up to be able to see everything ... but please watch it, soak up the atmosphere and experience it properly. Don’t stand there filming it for later - it’s about being there in the moment.

An absolutely stunning memorial architecturally. Once you’re underneath, read about it and look at the thousands of names of Commonwealth soldiers whose bodies were lost, it’s a truly sobering experience. I’d have liked to be there for the Last Post ceremony at 8pm but was unable to.
