Such a moving place. So many died in service to their country (215k + 250k people) on both sides in WW1. Just can't imagine the numbers...

Have always wanted to visit Flanders and found time to take in this wonderful cemetery. There is a peace here that can't be described, a place to remember and reflect on the sacrifice made by so many young men who gave their lives to protect...More

This is bar far the biggest cemetery I have ever visited and it is very sobering to think how many people laid down their lives and how many more were unaccounted for, it can get busy, but remains peaceful.

This was my second visit and it was probably more emotional than the first. You can spend hours just reading the names and regiments of those killed in that terrible conflict of the First World War. Thousands and thousands of names, all those lost in...More

I found my visit here to be a very moving experience. All those graves. All those young lives lost. The graves of those unknown soldiers were particularly heartbreaking as they have families back home who have no idea where they are. It's a beautiful area...More

Tyne Cot is a must when visiting the Belgian salient! The visitor centre is excellent and I spent hours just reading headstones, getting through only a small part of the cemetery.

This along with all the other cemeteries are beautifully maintained. It really brings home the sense of loss and the sheer number of lives that were lost. Extremely emotional. The little museum its visitors book is also a must

Everyone (especially politicians from around the world) should visit a site like this at least once in their life to witness the scale of the loss of life from war. This one, being the largest, has lots of additional information and artefacts along with the...More

Beautifully kept. Visited during our Freedom Flame tour. Such a vast, well positioned landscape. As our first cemetery stop, it was a huge sense of gratitude for those fallen. So calm and sadly, so full.

We are visiting Tyne Cot next weekend on a Battlefields Tour. My husband has an uncle named on the wall. Can we purchase a poppy cross or wreath in the Visitor Centre to leave in his remembrance. Many thanks in anticipation. Nena Ellen.

You should spend at least 1. 5 hours here, as it is one of the largest CWG Cemeteries. The good news is that unlike the smaller cemeteries there are toilets available ( .50 euros @ Mar 15). It is also well worth also... More
