The Battle of Britain Memorial is a beautiful memorial, and it is quite moving to see the photos of the young men who bravely served. The propeller encased on the lawn is a fitting tribute, and we were especially thrilled to witness a "fly over"...More

A very thoughtful memorial to so many who died to allow us to have our freedom. A really fabulous setting on the clifftops. The disabled car parking areas are not long enough when unloading from the back of a vehicle as you move into what...More
