The American Cemetery at Madingley is only 20 minutes drive from you accommodation. It is the only American World War 2 burial site in England.

It is a place of peace and tranquility, located on land donated by Cambridge University, and pays tribute to the American service men and women who gave their lives in the war.

There are just over 3800 white crosses bearing the names of the fallen, and a Portland stone wall bearing the names of another 5000 whose remains were never discovered or identified.

Although perhaps not what one would think of as a holiday activity, most visitors find a visit here to be a moving and memorable occasion. American Cemetery Web Site.
