One of two Canadian memorials staffed by well trained student interns. Informative tours of battlefield where no man's land is only a narrow strip of land. Tour the extensive tunnels.

Very moving spot particularly for Canadians. So many young men on both sides died here for no reason that could make sense. Everyone, in particular all Canadians should see the memorial and site.

Visit on a cold winters day when the rain is lashing down and the wind blowing hard, if the temperature is well below freezing that would be all the better. Then you may get some sense of humility that this place engenders. You come away...More

Places to park at the museum and also at the monument but the latter can be a bit busy so do think about walking up - it's only circa 15 mins. Parking at the oblong museum you're greeted inside and can wander around before moving...More
