This is an extremely well-maintained, presented and moving memorial. The setting is superb. There is audio-visual as well as other displays. On the day we visited there was only a few other visitors giving a calmness that added to the sense of respect. There is...More

We thought we would pay our respects and stopped by on our trip to Cambridge. It is a beautiful memorial to those who fought and died in service to our country and our allies

Bit of a way out of the city centre but you can get the hop on hop off bus. Very well kept and worth a visit if you have never seen a military war grave cemetary.

Wonderful spot. Very moving. We arrived at opening on Easter Sunday and stayed about an hour. We had the entire place to ourselves. Not one other person. Very special place.

You can buy ticket for Hop on and Off bus or when in city centre look for bus nr 4 (Departs Cambridge, Jesus College every 30 minutes)
