Sidon is about 60 kilometres south of Beirut on the Mediterranean coast of Lebanon. Sidon War Cemetery lies about 1 kilometre inland from the southern bay of Sidon harbour in Sabbagh Quarter. Barghout Street is in the Durukman area. The entrance is in a small road called Sahl al Sabbagh, leading right off the Rue Iskandarani. A taxi or a shared taxi is the only form of public transport from Beirut which, with its airport, is the nearest convenient centre to Sidon. Visitors wishing to gain entry to the Cemetery outside of normal working hours (Monday to Friday, 07.30 to 14.30) should contact the British Embassy, Beirut. Arrangements can then be made for the gardener to be on site.
