    The Canadian National Vimy Memorial overlooks the Douai Plain from the highest point of Vimy Ridge, about eight kilometers northeast of Arras. From the N17, follow the D55E2 to the D55, then proceed northward toward Givenchy-en-Gohelle. Signs directing visitors to the memorial are clear and readily observed.

    There is an office and Visitor Education Centre on site.

    The grounds around the memorial are open year-round, containing restored and preserved trenches and tunnels. To view these, it is recommended that visitors pre-book. Without a booking, visitors will be accommodated depending on operational capacity. To make a booking, please contact the Vimy Office.

    The Commonwealth War Graves Commission maintains a virtual memorial for the 11,236 casualties.
