An architecturally beautiful and emotionally moving place to visit. Sited about a 25 minute walk from the centre of Arras but there is a free bus whose circuit includes a stop at the Citadel which is next door to the cemetery.

The CWWGC does an amazing job on all of these cemeteries and memorials. Very humbling seeing the expanse of the ground and the number of names on the memorial. This is a must see when visiting Arras or wanting to tour some of the cemeteries/memorials...More

There is no gates or fee to enter, open to all. Car park across the road may have a barrier and only open at certain times.
