Thank you for your kind comments and obvious empathy with this beautiful site. I wondered if you might let me know what you meant by 'not 100% complete'? We opened in 1956 and the only changes since then have been the building and rest facilities...More

The visitor centre made this cemetary something special. The interactive displays made the whole experience very personal. Everywhere was beautifully kept and a credit to the American Armed Forces.

This is a must see when visiting the Cambridge area. A very moving site with not only the cemetary but also the chapel and it's historical display of the WWII battles. The reflection pool and memorial are tranquil and beautiful and the grounds are magnificent!

Did not realise an American War Cemetery existed in England prior to this visit. Well maintained and beautifully laid out memorial to those we all owe so much to. Visitor centre very informative. Certainly worth a visit.

The whole area is immaculately maintained and well laid out. As well as walking through the graves, the chapel and the 'Wall of the Missing' with it's statues are worth looking at. Allow time to visit the interesting Visitor's Centre which is full of stories,...More

These beautifully maintained grounds are a spot of quiet & calm away from the city centre. Buses regularly stop right outside, so it's still very accessible and a nice break from the crowds on King's Parade. When I last went, we virtually had the place...More

Beautifully presented memorial and cemetery that is a must see for those interested in the 20th century history of the locality and the 2nd world war with the impact the Americans had on the area.

I've lived in the East Midlands for 20+ years and driven past here multiple times. On US Independence Day I decided to finally stop and pay my respects. This is a beautiful, sombre & moving memorial beautifully located on the edge of Cambridge in 30...More

You can buy ticket for Hop on and Off bus or when in city centre look for bus nr 4 (Departs Cambridge, Jesus College every 30 minutes)
