Be prepared to be overwhelmed upon arrival at Zonnebeke’s Tyne Cot. With nearly 12,000 buried soldiers, this memorial is the largest Commonwealth cemetery in the world, for any war, a sad claim to fame. Dizzying rows of white gravestones line the grass, overlooking sweeping views of the bucolic countryside. The site’s surrounding wall is a memorial to the missing, bearing the name of nearly 35,000 men from the UK that were never found and presumed dead.

Discover the numerous WWI sites and join us in commemorating those who fought in Flanders Fields.
