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.

“Long Awaited”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Striking memorial and very poignant given the long wait to honour the bomber pilots and crew. My wife's great uncle was a bombardier lost in action over Holland in a Lancaster.

“Fitting Tribute”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Owing to delays on the tube, we adapted a planned route by walking through Green Park.

Strolling in the afternoon sunshine, we chanced upon the Bomber Command Memorial, which we had previously heard of. This is a very worthwhile memorial to the brave men of the Royal Air Force, and a fitting tribute to the air crew who risked their lives.

We were proud to stand in silence for a while.

“interesting”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

A fine memorial, but why did we have to wait so long to get it. ( We know the answer, but cannot really believe it!). Stand there and remember.
