    Sure to pass through here! Cemetery is incredibly maintained, many white slabs with beautiful red flowers make impression. In the visitor centre and the names of the soldiers are called up photos projected. Found this very poignant. ...

    Remember the fallen. Some of the exhibits show these were people with real live cut short very sad.

    Largest war cemetery in western Europe. Definitely worth seeing and remembering.

    Beautifully maintained and extremely moving. I don't think words can describe much more of what it feels like it to stand and witness the silent testament to such reckless slaughter as it does standing in the centre of Tyne Cot.
