If you are in Flanders on your own personal pilgrimage, I can highly recommend a short stop to see the Welsh Memorial. It is a small park, but just perfect. The dragon atop the cromlech as the centrepiece is stunning. The info board and the...More

Visited here with my husband who is Welsh. It is a very moving place but the large red dragon is fantastic what a memorial! It would have been useful to have some description of where the stones etc came from and what their significance is.

We had to visit the Welsh National Memorial Park as our town had raised the most money to help build it. We absolutely love it! It is positioned perfectly and the dragon is beautiful! Well be back again soon.
