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...

Our last stop on our visit to London. A bit of a challenge to find, although it is right where the Tripadvisor map shows. It is out in the middle of traffic, so be careful. With the movie and play Warhorse we're more aware of the role of animals in war. This memorial isn't just to horses but all the... More

this beautiful memorial is right up the road from Marble Arch --you have to look for it unless you're driving down the main road--for animal lovers this is a must see--and it's a great eye opener for everyone else
