Very moving and located on a beautiful hill overlooking a stunning view. The location definitely adds to the experience. I arrived quite early around 8:00am and had it all to myself.

Hill 104 near Villers-Bretonneux is the perfect location for their Memorial. From the top of the Memorial, there are commanding views of the local countryside, which gives a better understanding about the conditions faced in these battles.
