A visit to this very special place is a requirement if you want to get some actual experience of what life in the trenches was like. The new memorial garden is a place of solitude and will look terrific when it is finally finished.

This is superb so much history in such a small space, it's presented very well and the audio guide is great. You walk your way through the war and the trenches. I can't recommend this highly enough.

I’m sorry to read this. But I’m not completely surprised. Flexibility is not Europeans’ middle name!
