A very well kept, manicured, and lush final resting place for the British. The monument to the Unkown Soldiers is quite moving as well. Simply a beautiful cemetery honoring the fallen.

The American cemetery is even more beautiful than you could ever imagine. Not only that but it is extremely well cared for.

We visited the American Cemetery prior to going to the British Cemetery, and that was a very moving experience (touching and beautiful). The British Cemetery is smaller, but also beautiful. There is more information on the tombstones, and each has a short saying or comment...More

Call by and pay your respects to these brave lads. Lovely laid out as with all CWG sites. But was spoilt by a family leting their child run around and climb over the place.

A "must visit" for what it represents. It is nicely laid out with flowers at each tombstone. It is a shame that there is a busy road that goes through the edge of the cemetery.

Thank Chris E

I am sorry I do not know. But would assume no due to the nature of the site.
