  • This cemetery for American World War II soldiers is most impressive. It is beautifully designed and immaculately kept by the four full time gardeners.

  • This cemetery was very beautiful, I felt very emotional reading about how amazingly brave the soldiers were in the war. I felt it was insensitive to take pictures of the crosses themselves so i only took pictures of a few of the lovely decorations. The place is very well looked after as it should be. It's a perfect place to remember those who fought and lost their lives for their country
  • Visited England from the states and this was a must stop visit. A very well maintained cemetery and quiet place. It really makes you reflect on the sacrifice these men and women payed to protect our freedom. They will never be forgotten. May their souls rest in peace
  • A tranquil but powerful place. The unique spectacle makes me feeling like floating in the sea of history. Among a lot of reflections come out after the visit, the stronger part comes from those heroes' families or the one who loves them. History always means one or several generations. But for most individuals, it seems no meaning at all. The only option is to be coerced.
  • Like the WWII cemeteries in France, visiting this cemetery is a sobering and an awe-inspiring experience. The grounds are so well laid out and maintained that it is well worth strolling alone the reflecting pool and to stop and ponder at the names of the young men, killed in their prime. There are good 3D wall maps explaining the various campaigns of the war. We spent well over an hour here as a stop over on the way to a weekend stay in Cambridge. Glad we did so and were able to pay our respectful thanks for the ultimate sacrifices made. We would certainly come again.
  • A moving but peaceful place to reflect on lives lost. Found Glen Miller’s name, the bench dedicated to the cemetery mason and spoke to a very friendly & helpful custodian.
