Owner description: 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.

Truly a beautiful sculpture worth the walk. The special part of my time there was the personal notes and items left for those who served. Very touching memorial and worth the extra steps.

Went to London for a work reunion but had a few spare hours so went to visit the Memorial.Would say to people don't go to Green Park Station its a good 3/4 mile walk through the Park and the sign postings are not brilliant instead go to Hyde Park Corner Underground it is diagonally across via the Wellington Memorial about 2 1/2 mins walk.
That said when youi get to the Momunent it is a very impressive and moving monument people have left pictures and small crosses dedicated to theirt loved ones and the inscriptions on the wall are also quite moving.
Shame as a sign of the times there is now a Policeman permanently station outside to stop the Monument being vandlised.
Altogether an impressive site and a true Monument to all those Aircrew and civilians who lost their lives in theat terrible conflict.

A moving tribute to people who daily risked their lives for King & country. It is of course impossible to ignore their innocent victims though, but was there another way?

It was one of the most moving memorials I have seen. Not just the truly lifelike sculptures of the Aircrew of Bomber Command, but all the personal tributes and messages that had been left around. We all owe those men so much...

Read the notes left and go at night it's just fantastic and very moving. How lucky we are that these brave souls risked their lives and many lost their lives night after night to protect us.
