  • A wonderful and moving memorial to the fallen of 1917 and 1918 (those from 1914, 1915, and 1916 are remembered on the Menin Gate). Beautifully maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission...  more »
  • After the disappointing visit to the In Flanders Fields Museum, we "enjoyed" the new visitor centre here. It was more informative and moving than the museum. The cemetery is a peaceful place to be.  more »

  • Tyne Cot Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery and Memorial to the Missing is a very respectful and Tranquil place. If you're in Belgium I definitely recommend that you come here no matter how far away it is out of your way. It is a Very moving place with many graves that are honoured even if their names are not known. It is Definitely somewhere worth visiting and paying respects to. It offers much information as well. The site is very well maintained.
