Went to visit the memorial with family and friends including a teenage boy.
Good parking cost £3 all day no other options.
Extensive gardens. Multiple sculptures out front and the main one out behind the centre in the memorial gardens.
The gardens have multiple trees planted each dedicated to a different airbase and squadron. Plaques flank the pathway to the memorial dedicated to the fallen air crew.
And around the memorial are walls filled with the names of the fallen alphabetically listed. A very humbling tribute in a place of calm reflection.
Inside is a shop, cafe and a museum which tells the history of the bomber Command through WW2. With displays, interactive areas and 4 short films. Statistics are displayed which bring the reality of sacrifice into perspective.
Well worth a visit.

The monument tower is very humbling with all the walls of names of those lost. It also has fabulous views over the city of Lincoln and especially the cathedral. The exhibition is really well put together and interactive making some of the stories really come to life. The cafe is lovely too with a great selection of dishes. It was very cold and windy the day we visited and as it is situated on the hill top and being very exposed we had to battle with the wind. It didn’t stop us seeing anything but it would have been even more amazing on a better day. Overall this is an amazing tribute to those who served and lost their lives in the war.

Dear Neil

Thank you for braving the elements for your visit - it can get very blowy up here!

We hope that your next visit will be in sunshine, when you will also see our wildlife rich wild grasses and flower beds in full bloom.

Best wishes

The children were enthralled! Splitting them into small groups was a masterstroke.
Searching questions were asked and by the children and answered in full by the group leaders.
A visit during 2020 is eagerly looked forward to.

Thank you for both the review and for bringing the children to see the centre. Education lies at the heart of everything we do.

Our learning team of staff and volunteers are so passionate about providing an engaging visit for children whilst at the IBCC, and it is wonderful to be able to give them feedback like this.

We look forward to welcoming you back later in the year.

Best wishes

Nicky

A real treat for all generations.
Firstly the cafe, spire and shop are free to visit with a small car parking fee.
The exhibition is excellent and really gives a feeling of what those brave men experienced, you can use your ticket for 12 months if you ask at the desk.
The cafe is bright and welcoming with great views, food is very reasonably priced.
From the spire wonderful views of the city and seeing all those names is a real reminder if the losses incurred.
