If you like your history then this is a lovely place to visit. Much smaller than i imagined. I know it sounds strange, but it is far more educational than what you learn at school.

our group walked the peaceful route through lovely gardens to visit this serene resting place for fallen heroes by the river inside the walls of the town of Ypres

This fairly small cemetery is found easily by walking south along the ramparts of Ypres from the Menin Gate through pleasant wooded shady grounds. A place to be quiet and thoughtful about the huge sacrifices made 100 years ago by mainly very young men.

Sitting alongside the Lille gate in Ypres it's very easy to drive straight past this site but it's very much worth a stop to visit this beautifully maintained cemetery overlooking the river and pay your respects to the young men laying there.
