Beautifully kept and quite awe inspiring in the detail and care that has been taken to make this a place of respect and honour of those who died and went missing both on land, sea and in the air during World War 2.

I always try and bring visitors to Cambridge to this place. It’s very humbling to go to and instils a sense of how people made the maximum sacrifice for our lives today. Beautifully maintained. Recommended

First time of visiting and the cemetery is beautiful, peaceful and humbling. The visitor centre has a wonderful exhibition of stories and photos which are heartbreaking and uplifting all at once. Whilst not a place I would visit often I would recommend anyone visit.More

There are many airmen commemorated here at the Cambridge Cemetery, but also the other branches of the military are sadly represented. There are civilians buried at Cambridge, including four infants.

Remarkable experience. I’ve visited several American Cemeteries in Europe previously but I’ve never had a tour guide before. It is always a humbling experience but with a tour guide it comes to life. Richard, our tour guide, told the stories of several men who are...More

Unfortunately we do not generally allow dogs on site, only assist dogs. Our car park is in woodland and shaded, if that helps.

Just to confirm, there is neither a gift shop, nor café. However, the 4000sq foot exhibition in the Visitor Centre is open throughout the year and warm in winter.

The flag is raised by the time that the cemetery opens at 09:00. It is lowered to 'Taps' at 16:30 every day. Visitors are encouraged to help fold the flag in the way that is traditional for the US flag.
