Sited on land donated by Cambridge University, this is the only permanent WW2 American cemetery in Britain. There are 3,812 graves with the names of 5,127 who were never recovered inscribed on a wall. The cemetery is about 2 miles out of Cambridge city centre, there is free parking and it is on the route of the Cambridge tour buses, it is open every day except Christmas Day and New Years Day from 9am to 5pm or at dusk in the winter when earlier. A moving experience whether you have any connection to America or not. website
