This was the last stop on a three day WW1 battlefields tour, during which we had seen numerous cemeteries and memorials, each one kept immaculately by the CWGC. This one was every bit as emotional to visit as all the others. It's impossible for modern...More

The CWWGC does an amazing job on all of these cemeteries and memorials. Very humbling seeing the expanse of the ground and the number of names on the memorial. This is a must see when visiting Arras or wanting to tour some of the cemeteries/memorials...More

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.

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.

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.
