“Fascinating glimpse into the past”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

The place just oozes history with graves of those who weren't fortunate enough to survive one of the most important sea battles in our history. Not too far to walk from the shops in Main Street so recommend you take the time and take a look.

Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is the resting place of some of the soldiers that didn't make it after the battle of Trafalgar. You will find that barbary apes some time hang around so watch your bags !. Otherwise, worth a visit.

Well maintained cemetery with headstones and plaques giving details of those brave men who lost their lives. Many men died of fever resulting from injuries inflicted during sea battles.
