This is a beautiful memorial in Hyde Park Square reminiscent of the Vietnam Memorial in DC in that there are names inscribed on the memorial and it is set low to the ground. The materials are substantially different however and the names are carved in such a way that they also form the names of locations of battles fought by... More

Just simply stunning. Somehow I hadn't seen this in my trips to London but walked a different way this time and there it was. It is an absolutely stunning tribute. The curved wall is ghostly with its calming waterfall. I was amazed when I saw the writing on the wall and at a closer look the larger writing was made... More

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.

Designed by Janet Laurence and architects from Tonkin Zulaikha Greer in 2003, the Australia Memorial is... More

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
