  • A haunting yet beautiful place. Emotional.
  • It was beautiful, such peace for great people.
  • 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.
  • 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.
