I was blown away by all the cushions on the chairs with all the emblems. So much work has gone into this project.

Hello, Thank you so much for your excellent review. The kneelers truly microcosm of British & Commonwealth military history and we are immensely proud of them.

Went to Saint George's Church during November during the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice. The Church was covered with crochet poppies and inside I was amazed with seat covers depicting British units that fought in Ieper during the war.

Dear Judy, Thank you so much for the excellent review. We are delighted that you got a chance to see the Poppy Cascade. It was a very special event for us. We will be marking the 90th anniversary of our opening later this year.

My first visit to learn more about Flanders, Ypres and the surrounding area. Very poignant indeed. You travel around the landscape and visit the ‘beautiful’ cemeteries, the villages and of course the Menin Gate. But, perhaps the highlight for me was this fabulous unassuming memorial...More

Don't rush in and out, take a little time to walk around and wonder at the number of plaques, not only from army regiments but from schools, remembering their former pupils who died in the world wars. Visit the gardens.

Whilst not big this church is a good place to visit. Many plaques adorn the walls and we found it interesting to find those local to our home towns. The embroidered kneeling pads are interesting in their own right. The display of handmade poppies looked...More

Not very grand as far as churches go but looked spectacular with all the knitted poppies outside up the walls. Inside the kneelers were very interesting with different counties and forces all represented.

Thanks you for your excellent review. We had an overwhelmingly positive response to both the poppy display and the silhouettes.

Having visited previously when in Ypres/Ieper for Armistice weekend could not pass up the opportunity to return. Moving and thought provoking poppy installation honouring the fallen. Fantastic place to pause and reflect. Lovely kneelers with various regiments inscribed on them and numerous plaques on the...More
