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.

This is a Very impressive Monument which was so so overdue to the young men who got into their aircraft to fly on missions knowing that they would probably not return. What Brave Brave men our country had, to keep us safe. A very Moving...More

This commemorates the work of the few for the many. Great monument on the corner of Hyde Park. Took a lot of work to get this built but wonderful to record our appreciation of the past.

The attention to detail in the artwork is impressive as is the size of the memorial itself. That being said it is just an impressive memorial. I wouldn't make the trip back to visit again but this should not deter others from seeing it once...More

Set back just a touch from busy Piccadilly, this memorial comprises a set of large central statue set within a small open plaza. There is lots of information in the simple, classical setting.

Very cool and accurate statues of the bomber soldiers. Close to Buckingham Palace, so drop by when you are there. Not worth a detour.

We went to visit the memorial as my Grandad was a pathfinder in the bomber command. I think this is amazing and very grand, its nice to see them get the recognition they deserve.

A long overdue commemoration of Bomber Command. Well worth a short visit. Shame it had to depend on (and recognise) commercial donors.

It took far too long to stop blaming these brave men for things that were not in their control. Notes left by visitors were very poignant.

A fitting tribute to the bomber boys, and about time too. This monument is a superb design, simple, elegant, the very best of British. It's just a pity there aren't better signs as to where it is, it doesn't appear on any of the park...More
