At our hotel check-in, we were told about the Gate, and that the Last Post is performed each evening at 20:00. We arrived about five minutes before and already it was busy. While we couldn't see the Last Post being performed, we could obviously hear...More

We came here just for the day a few years ago and wanted to come and see more of the are. This has to be one of the most visited places and rightly so.

This is a must-see when you are in Ieper. There is a ceremony every day eight o'clock. Be early to get a good place.

The Menin gate is a humbling sight the walls covered in the names of soldiers who died in the surrounding battlefields and who have no grave. It's humbling and frightening to see the vast number of names stretching to the roof on every single visible...More

I arrived to view my great uncles name in the memorial wall and to listen to the last post being played with perhaps 50 people. I was totally blown away with the 1000 plus crowd and the heart felt memorial service. It was emotional to...More

If you know the name and regiment it could still take a while but all the Australian battalions are together so that might be easier. There is a shelf below the column where his name is so you can leave a poppy there.

The whole evening is organised. You can bring a wreath along but get there at least half an hour before. You will be shown where to go and told what to do.
