Humbling and beautiful place to visit

We visited on the 1st January 2017, there was snow on the ground and a thick frost on the trees. It was just stunning! I am truly glad to have visited the memorial and humbled to see the trenches of WW1. Must see if you are in the area

On a very cold, windy day, a visit to this well-preserved historic site really drives home the ghastly nature of trench warfare during the First World War. The situation becomes more horribly real if you imagine all the trees and grass gone and the ground all churned up by artillery action. The soldiers of the Dominion of Newfoundland crossed the...

Newfoundland Memorial Park was such an incredible experience for me and my friends when we went there. The sun was shining clearly and it was a lovely day, so it was hard to imagine this once being the front line of one of the most terrible battles in the whole of WWI and indeed the world's history. The trenchlines are... More

Having read and heard a lot about the Beaumont-Hamel battle site (we have friends in Newfoundland) we have wanted to visit for a long time. This was the site of the battle on the 1st day of the Somme - 1 July 1916 where at 0845, 800 members of the Newfoundland Regiment (later Royal Newfoundland Regiment) went 'over the top'... More

The Newfoundlanders site is very impressive and well preserved. Reading about the First World War does not prepare you for the actual geography of these battles. The lines between the Germans and the Newfoundlanders were so close. So many of Newfoundland's young men lost in such a small space. The preserved trenches and remnants of barbed wire make you realise... More

Terrific memorial to the brave souls who fought here and elsewhere along the western front. The self guided tour gives a great explanation of the battlefield and the preserved trenches with their shell holes and the remains of the barbed wire fences allow you to really get a feel for the conditions. Perhaps because the site is fairly small the... More

Fantastic Memorial. Plenty to see as you walk around this site. From the Newfoundland memorial to the Lone Scotish soldier Memorial and Hunters Cemetery. Hawthorne Mine Crater and Hawthorne Ridge Cemetery. Y Ravine Cemetery and all the preserved Trenches and the Beaumont Hamel museum.. I'll be going back again.

The Canadians support this memorial just like the one a Vimy and there is a visitor centre and guides on hand. The remnants of barbed wire posts and trenches is really quite eerie and goes some way to illustrating what things must have been like in the war. A self-guided tour is fine to visit this attraction.

Our group of six did a self-directed Trail of the Caribou tour in honour of the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme and the Royal Newfoundland Regiment. For us, Beaumont Hamel was the pièce de résistance, being the memorial to the Royal Newfoundland Regiment and the "July Drive" of 1916. The tr Ches and craters are left as... More
