We spent a week touring WW1 and WW2 battlefields and visited many cemeteries. I believe it is important to pay respects to those who lost their lives. This is a lovely and quiet place to honor the dead of WW2.

A very moving experience. Extremely well kept memorial to those who died during the Normandy campaign. Also very modest and quiet. A place for reflection.

We visited whilst staying in Normandy as thought it would be right to do so. The cemetery is kept extremely neat and all headstones are clean. It was a real eye opener seeing it all yourself, some headstones had no names, some were 17,18,19 years...More

Just walking thru the cemetery brings into focus June 6 and the many days afterwards that these men and boys gave their lives to help France and the world. Bayeux should be proud to be hosting the final resting place of these brave British fighting...More

Moving and beautiful, we need to remember the people who died for our freedom. An interesting contrast to the American cemetery not far away. both respectful, but so different in character

After having been to the American cemetery with all its precision grass cutting and flags fluttering in the breeze it was even more sobering to see the modest British cemetery ,this does not take away any of the sacrifices these men made for our freedom.

We visited Bayeux War Cemetery on the 28th August 2018. It was kept very tidy. Explained to my children the importance of why we decided to visit, we looked at the headstones and some of the ages of the brave soldiers who fought for our...More

Don't know if this is a bit late, but we stayed in the Premier Classe in Bayeux, about €42 a night for a room (didn't bother with breakfast but I've heard it's good). It's clean and comfortable and about 10 minutes walk from... More
