Were able to attend both ceremonies at 10 a.m.and 8 p.m. on Armistice Day so was moving to commemorate the events of 1918 with so many from many countries.

No visit to Menim Gate would be complete without a visit to see the last post. Get there early to get a good space. Very humbling.

Spent a very special and poignant time at the Menin Gate during Remembrance Sunday (Armistice 100) ypres weekend pilgrimage. Truly humbling experience on this day but not accessible due to the dpecial service going on for remembrance sunday 11/11/2018. Other times it is accessible to view all the names of soldiers of the Great War with no known grave,

I wasn't born before either of the great wars but had relative who fought died and survived them, there are many places to visit to pay your respect to these brave heroes known or unknown . A must on anyone's bucket list.

A very moving experience, bu for best view make due you stand at opposite end to town centre entrance. The crowds were so big that anyone other than in front rows saw nothing. However being there was the important thing and using the next day to visit the walls in closeup and read the thousands of names with no known grave was a chastening experience

It was a privilege to be part of this ceremony on such a significant day: 11/11/18. The whole experience was amazing such a once in a lifetime experience. I have been many times before but this was truly something else. It is well worth a visit on any day.

Thank you, one of the highlights of our visit to Flanders for the WWI centenary. An extremely moving experience, I cannot wait to return to pay my respects.

To visit Ypres and not to attend the daily ceremony would be a shame.
Very haunting & moving. To realise that all the names carved into the gate have no known grave is simply staggering.

My husband and daughter, both history teachers with a passion for educating students about WW1 have attended this service in previous years when they have bought students from their respective schools touring the Western Front. This was my turn. We stayed in Ypres for 4 nights touring cemeteries and taking in the whole Western Front experience. For 3 out of the 4 nights we came to this service, every service was different except that I cried each night. Extremely moving, beautifully done and a real tribute to those lost. It was heart warming to see so many young people there, I hope their schools or family explained why they were there, the purpose of it and need for us to learn from it. Thank you to the town of Ypres for continuing to pay this tribute night after night.

A very moving ceremony but was very crowded. Arrive very early for a good view. Parking available in the town centre and fairly cheap.
