Overview

The RAF Benevolent Fund is proud and privileged to be the custodian of the new Bomber Command Memorial in central London. The memorial has been built to be modern, yet classical, in Portland stone. At its heart are the bronze sculptures of a Bomber Command aircrew. Within the memorial, the space is open to the sky with an opening designed to allow light to fall directly onto sculptures of the aircrew.

It is a superb monument to the circa, 55,000 air crew who gave their lives at such a young age. Total respect required and given we will remember them

What can one say.....I felt overwhelmed and also had a feeling of closeness to our brave boys. Very well presented. Incorporated this visit with the poppy display and a visit to the IWM to see the WW1 galleries.

This is one of the most awe inspiring memorials I have ever seen. A very fitting tribute to the bravery of the aircrew that flew into the darkness, never to return.

Interesting statues in fine memorial to the brave men and women of England. In the park and a short walk from Wellingtons Arch.

History + impressive memorial - Interested in history of the bomber command and its vital achievements during the dark days of war. This is an appropriate way to comerate the sacrifices of the young men who died to keep us free.

A memorial that truly reflects what it was created to commemorate. I liked the fact he clearly shows what it is all about. It was long overdue even if some would disagree for their own reasons.

The quality of the memorial is just incredible. Somehow it seems to project the gravity and enormity of what these people did for their country. If you are in the area it really is a must see.

Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier

a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
