“Very moving”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is a solemn place a a beautifully maintained reminder of how may gave their lives for our freedom. There are works going on at present which detract a little from the cemetery but I think it is a place that everyone should visit and spend a while looking at the staggering number of names on the wall of those whose last resting place was never known.

“Profound and thought rovoking”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

As with most war cemetery's it is an opportunity to quietly reflect on the sacrifices made by many for us to have the opportunity and freedom to chose to visit or not. It is a good contrast to the over load of information that can come from visitng other venues.

“American Cemetery”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Was amazed by the chapel. Walked in and stood open mouthed at the décor. A very peaceful and reflective building. The cemetery is so peaceful and well laid out/ A must see site when visiting Cambridge.
