This is a lovely cemetery honouring the American dead from various conflicts. Visit it not just to respect those who lie there but to experience inner peace in a beautiful place.

It was nice to see this honor for fallen Americans during WWII. The grounds were nice, the reflecting pool and wall were beautiful. The chapel was neat and don't forget to check out the wall on the outside. It was a good reminder of how...More

We visited the cemetery whilst on a short break in Cambridge area. Beautifully kept. The visitor centre is a very moving experience. Well worth a visit.

Took the City Bus Tour which stops here. The chapel is wonderful. In the Visitor Centre is a display which is well worth a visit and contains a film that explains WW2 and the US involvement very clearly. Not specifically for youngsters but should be...More

Maintained by US war memorial service. Well done and deserving monument to the 9,000 Americans interred and missing in action, most from the AAF 8th Air Force. The history and video clips in the visitors's center were spot on with the history of the RAF...More

This is a wonderful tribute to the Americans who gave their lives to aid the UK and Allies against Nazi Germany. It had an excellent information centre and beautiful setting and we plan to visit again.

Glad that you and the family found your visit interesting and thought provoking. We have activity sheets and trails for our younger visitors - but we often find that other visitors enjoy sharing them with the children.

No, however close by, about 1 minute by car and perhaps 10 walking is a garden centre with a nice cafe. The cemetery has an information centre (new) and a chapel. Plus the wall of the missing and the thousands of graves

The flag is raised by the time that the cemetery opens at 09:00. It is lowered to 'Taps' at 16:30 every day. Visitors are encouraged to help fold the flag in the way that is traditional for the US flag.
