Hill 62/Sanctuary Wood

After the war, the wood was turned into a private museum by the land’s owners, who realised at an early stage that the site would be of great interest to pilgrims and tourists. Today, Sanctuary Wood is considered by many to offer the finest preserved trenches on the Western Front. Aside from battlefield artefacts, the interior of the museum offers 3D stereoscopic photographs of highly graphic scenes taken during the war.

Nearby the museum is Sanctuary Wood Cemetery, containing over 2,000 burials. Also close to Sanctuary Wood museum is the Canadian Memorial at Hill 62
