This has to be one of the most amazing memorials to the 1st WW, in this instance remembering the Canadians who gave everything. I have visited this memorial several times over the last 33 years taking family to see it, and it never fails to...More

Vimy is remembered as Canada coming of age. Four Divisions fighting as a single army on their own. While still under British generals, they later took more battles, finally working under a Canadian general devising his own battle plans.

Visited last weekend on a glorious sunny day. A beautiful memorial and a good entrance museum - all free of charge. Good facilities and staff on hand to help.

Amazing place to visit and well worth taking a free guided tour. Canadian students take you to the underground tunnel that has been restored. It’s quite spooky and impressive. The trenches do give you an amazing insight of how it could have been for all...More

The Vimy Ridge Memorial is one of the most intense and moving war memorials we've visited. The Monument itself towers above the landscape, visible for miles around. Although it looks like a modern design with simple lines, it was built a hundred years ago to...More
