I have been here several times, the feeling of peace is amazing. I took my elderly aunt who wanted to pay her respects, one of the places she so wanted to visit. Its a very special place.

Thank you for your comments. As you say, the colours of the trees, which are all native American Species, are stunning in the autumn, and creating a wonderful backdrop to the graves of the young Americans who lost their lives during WWII.

Unfortunately we do not generally allow dogs on site, only assist dogs. Our car park is in woodland and shaded, if that helps.

Just to confirm, there is neither a gift shop, nor café. However, the 4000sq foot exhibition in the Visitor Centre is open throughout the year and warm in winter.
