There's no need for me to duplicate the information provided by previous reviewers, but none of them bothered to mention that the brave people commemorated here were all volunteers. This is a different kind of memorial, which doesn't really look like 'gates' to me but is sited on both sides of this wide thoroughfare. Definitely worth a visit to pay... More

This memorial is for members of the British military from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Africa and the Caribbean. It’s at the end of Constitution Hill, by Hyde Park Corner.

These gates are in Hyde Park, located at the Hyde Park end of Constitution Hill (close to the beginning of Knightsbridge). Inaugurated by the Queen in 2002, it commemorates those who lost their lives in the armed forces of the British Empire in WWI and WWII.

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
