After a 106km drive from Alexandria on a dusty coastal road through the desert, it was a relief to finally reach the El Alamein township. Our mini-bus stopped briefly outside the War Museum but we didn’t go inside, staying only long enough to pick up...More

I had been to the cemetery as a child many years ago with my family and aunt. The photos taken at the time were stunning. I was shocked to see how weathered the memorials and headstones were. My first visit was less than 20 years...More

Stark and somber place lying in the desert sun. Over 7300 graves, cremated remains of 600 more, and a memorial to the 8500 whose remains weren't recovered are located here. There are monuments to the men of various countries of the Commonwealth. The entire site...More

Not on the itinerary for most tourists to Egypt, but for military history buffs, this well-maintained cemetery (along with the other related sites) can be worth a trip from Alexandria. It is designed in a traditional, war cemetery style. The rows and rows of headstones...More

Just a short hop down the road from the Military Museum is a reminder of what waging war does to humans. Thousands of graves, carefully laid out in rows, interspersed with colourful desert plans. The entry-way and the huge cross of the memorial at the...More

As with all military cemeteries, this is a somber and reflective place. To those who lost family members here, it will certainly be an emotional visit. There was a terrific sandstorm the day we visited, which while it made viewing more difficult, gave at least...More

A place of reflection and to pay tribute to humanity in retrospect! So many young and innocent lifes lost in war for no grand cause. From the inside much grander and impressive than what meets the eye from outside. A must see by all means...More

I had no problems whatsoever about feeling secure. The cemetery was not crowded with tourists as it is a distance from Alexandria. I of course had a private driver and guide who spoke fluent English. There is military... More
