This is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful CWGC cemeteries of the Great War. Situated on the medieval ramparts next to the water, this is a serene place to think over what effect war has to humanity.

Like all Commonwealth War Grave Cemetries the Ramparts Cemetery is beautifully maintained. The location is so picturesque and tranquil overlooking the moat. It is not a large cemetery but is easily accessible as part of the walk around the ramparts.

Cemetry above the Menin gate. With all the sacrifices the list and locations go on and on. This one albeit adjacent to the Menin Gate is just another example of the pride and passion given in celebrating the ultimate sacrifice.

On the ramparts near a park, it has a lovely setting looking oven the moat, very quiet area. We walked the length of the walls out to the Essex farm cemetery along the canal.

Beautifully situated cemetery on the ramparts overlooking the great moat and a lake. See it as part of a lovely walk on the city walls, on Vauban's great ramparts. 1,100 metres from the Menin Gate.

A small war cemetery on the southern ramparts of Ypres. A microcosm of the sacrifices made during the Great War from 1914 to 1918 and from all branches of the army and from many nations. The view onto a peaceful river setting is most appropriate...More
