This great military cemetery was built during the First World War when the British wanted a base in France that was nearer to their country. Built right next to Calais beach, there are mostly English soldiers buried in the cemetery along with soldiers of few other nationalities. Seeing the uniformly aligned, rows upon rows of white Portland stones that are carved with names, the cemetery is a calm and silent place to reflect and pay respect to the bygones.
