Though I came across this monument by accident (crossing the road actually..was in the middle of a divided street), I have to say that I truly appreciated them taking the time and money to create this. Though many of us pay our respects to the people that have lost their lives in the act of war, most don't think to... More

This is one of my favorite monuments in London-being an animal lover. It is dedicated to the untold numbers of horses, donkeys, camels, oxen, dogs, birds and other animals killed serving armies at war. It is located in the middle of Park Lane near the north-east corner of Hyde Park. It is well worth a few minutes if you are... More

A really lovely gesture and furthermore done in vertu good taste. This leaves you really appreciating the impact animals had during war time in ways one would not have thought

These are really interesting sculptures honoring the many animals that have perished in countless wars. The man holding an elephant to the south of this is also very interesting. It stands in a side of Hyde park between Marble arch and Wellington arch.

It is just near the Marble Arch in a reserve between the north and southbound lanes. The animals are sympathetically presented and it is a very touching memorial to them. A horse leads the other animals through a 2 part semi circle. It was created as a result of public donations. Nearby are also several other memorials.

The Animals in War Memorial is located just east of Hyde Park in the green space between the north and southbound traffic on Park Lane. This is an interesting and honourable tribute to the animals used to support British and Commonwealth war efforts during conflicts of the 20th century. The memorial is a parted half circle with a bronze horse... More

I wanted to see this especially as another Dickens medal had just been awarded. The design is simple and but stunning and the posture of the animals is amazing

A short and simple review. I particularly wanted to visit this memorial when we visited London recently - i found it immensely moving and very simple and understated. It is a fitting reminder of those who fell next to their human companions.

I couldn't imagine this Memorial was so close to Marble Arch!In fact,it's just behind it.I must admit I left in tears...The dog which turns his head,as to say a farewell to his companion,is so moving...
