I recommend a visit to this solemn memorial, situated in the corner of Hyde Park. Stand in the centre, look at the memorial at it's height (taller than a person) then look left and right along the walls. It is a fitting place of respect.

The Australian War Memorial is in a corner of Hyde Park and is a beautiful tribute to the soldiers that made the ultimate sacrifice in the two great world wars. One of the inscriptions state, "Whatever burden you are to carry we also will shoulder that burden". The very definition of an ally, a friend. Greater love hath no man... More

We found this entirely by accident. It's very chilling. I'd never really thought about the Australian war help before (Yes I know) but it really helped put me into my place and inspired an amazon purchase and subsequent reading.

I was not aware of this Memorial until I visited others at the same site on Hyde Park Corner. Sometimes we do not necessarily appreciate what our two nations have done together in the past. Our relationship may have changed but our mutual respect has not!! All Australians visiting London should go and see it in Remembrance of their fellow... More

I was amazed to see such a good memorial to Australia's fallen service men and women, outside Australia. The memorial is beautifully sculpted and well worth a visit when in London.

I have studied and written about war memorials, and I have a great interest in architecture. On both points this scores about as high as you can get. The Australian War Memorial is an utterly wonderful piece of memorial art and a fitting tribute to the very many fallen Australians who volunteered to fight with Britain. I would hope any... More

Words can't do this piece of art justice- you should go and see it for yourself! I think it is stunning and, in my opinion, one of the best war memorials representing other countries that we have in London.

It really is beautifully done. All the names of all the Oz towns that sent their people away to fight, superimposed on the names of our major battles. Inevitably you find yourself looking for your town or suburb. It's a lovely tribute to a nation.

I loved the architecture of this memorial; names of all the towns that sent soldiers to the war are displayed; some in smaller and some in bigger fonts. From a distance you recognize the names in bigger fonts and as you get closer, you get to see all other town names as well which are in much smaller fonts.
