We visited in January. The cemetery is on a hill surrounded by fields and a few farms. Wrap up warm. The cemetery had an informative plaque at the entrance. The graves were well maintained. Unfortunately the tourist information cabin was closed until the end of...More

In an area where you find a WWI cemetery at every turn, Tyne Cot is vast and it is incredibly hard not to be moved by the scale. There is a small but informative visitors' centre. The sheer volume of unmarked graves, coupled with the...More

Once again, I was overwhelmed by the amount of loss of life and soldiers with no name. Also how well kept this massive cemetery is. A must see.

Impressive cemetary is an understatement. This is a very moving place, seeing the thousands of graves of young men of very distant countries like New Zealand who gabe their lives for our freedom. Must see visit with your children.

I’ve seen many images of war graves, heard many stories, seen many TV programmes, etc., but until yesterday I’d never experienced it with my own eyes. Everyone should visit at once in their lifetime. My visit was moving and most worthwhile.

Visited here in late October with my wife as we were staying in Bruges. Been a few times before, but never fails to have an effect. Always immaculate (unlike the behaviour of some who visit), on this occasion it was relatively empty.

Tyne Cot Cemetery is definitely a must see when visiting Ypres. So big, so beautiful and so overwhelming. Seeing all those (mostly unknown) graves it is hard not to contemplate the futility of war. So many lives lost and for what... nothing basically.

There is not a lot to say about this very quiet, dignified last resting place for so many young men. It is thoroughly overwhelming as you wander amongst the graves and read some of the names on the Memorial and realise that there are very...More

This place is a must to visit if you are doing a tour in the local area to pay your respects and see how many people were willing to loose their lives. It is a sad and poignant place but also shows how we look...More

You should spend at least 1. 5 hours here, as it is one of the largest CWG Cemeteries. The good news is that unlike the smaller cemeteries there are toilets available ( .50 euros @ Mar 15). It is also well worth also... More
