I am not sure anything prepares you for the scale of the cemeteries and the sheer numbers of people that gave their lives, so that we can live the way we do. We often asked ourselves what the young men that dies would think of...More

The cemetery is beautifully maintained and cared for, it truly is a poignant reminder of the folly of war! Each cross represents not just the fallen soldier, but family and loved ones left behind. I shall never forget the experience.

This was a visit for the 100th anniversary to the day to remember a family member who died in battle in March 1918 and whose body was never recovered - along with so many others. This cemetery is easily located in the city of Arras...More

By far the best and most beautiful of the British Memorials on the Western front. Easy parking. Lots to see including the RAF Memorial. A prime example of the dedication of the Commonwealth war Graves commission. Don't miss it if you are staying in Arras.

The memorial commemorates nearly 35,000 soldiers of the British, South African and New Zealand forces with no known grave. Most of those commemorated were killed in the Battle of Arras, fought between 9 April and 16 May 1917. It seemed fitting to visit this site...More

So nice to see how well looked after this place is. To call it thought provoking and moving is an understatement. So many young lives lost. Found my Great Uncle. If you have a relative mentioned here please visit. Very peaceful place.

I would have thought the lads would love it. I do not remember there being signs against dogs, only smoking I think.

There is no gates or fee to enter, open to all. Car park across the road may have a barrier and only open at certain times.
