You were heroes when you joined up. Thank you. You were heroes when you landed. Thank you. You were heroes when you died. Thank you. Nothing's changed. You are heroes always. Thank you.

It's nice to at least drive by this cemetery and remember all of the British who also helped liberate France from German occupation. It's not a big site and not as visited as the American cemetery near Omaha Beach. If in the area, it's worth...More

Solemn yet beautiful. Visited over Remembrance weekend, graves were well kept and atmosphere was sad.

An interesting contrast with the American cemetery in Normandy as headstones often included quotes from family members which brought out another level of emotion. Occasional photos and gardens accompanied some of the headstones. And it was interesting to see at least one set of conjoined...More

This is just not a cemetery for British fallen but for soldiers of many nations, including German, who gave their lives during the struggle for Normandy. Going through the gravestones shows what a terrible cost war can be. Sobering when you see 8 - 10...More

A visit to the war cemetary just puts into perspective the sheer scale and horror of these conflicts. We should never forget what the brave generations who went before sacrificed for us. If you've never visited, consider it now.

I would encourage you to visit the British War Cemetery in Bayeaux, a short walk from the nearby 'Museum of the Battle of Normandy'. It is a sobering reminder of the sacrifices that so many made to liberate Europe from Nazi Germany. This small cemetery...More

This cemetery for the British soldiers killed during the invasion of Normandy is less well known than the American cemetery but should be seen first for two reasons. First, as large as it is, it helps to put the American cemetery in perspective. Second, the...More
