Along Park Lane, this is a place to stop to appreciate the service of a variety of animals in the military history of the U.K. and other countries. A nice short stop in site-seeing in London's west end.

This memorial is for the forgotten hero's of war we all remember when a solder gets killed or maimed but we never remember animals but this memorial changes this and too right as well

You can not help but feel touched by this simple but very lovely memorial sitting just to the side of (I think) Hyde Park. I detoured a block to see the memorial when I saw it on my on-line map; it puts the sacrifice of war back in mind - particularly those poor creatures who 'Had No Choice'; the theme... More

Beautiful and lasting tribute to the contributions made by animals during the war effort. When we talk of lives lost during war, we rarely think about the animals that were injured or killed during a military conflict. The sculpture consists of two towering walls and multiple sculptures depicting the animals that assisted in the war effort. Very impressive and moving.... More

A really touching tribute to all the animals that passed as a result of war! This gets me every time I pass by it and especially reminds me of the movie WarHorse!

I found that as I travelled throughout England, Wales and Scotland, there was a common sensibility for the love of animals, with many special ways of remembering one's furry friends, whether by statues, special cemeteries (as in Edinburgh Castle for the soldier's dogs,), or even names of pubs. When I returned to London, I was touched to see this memorial... More

Very nice piece of sculpture and the of set smaller sculptures of the types of animals that had once helped the fallen. It's worth a visit so we dnt forget all brave souls.

This beautiful, simple memorial next to Hyde Park in London is a must-see for any animal lover visiting the area. It is a lovely and touching tribute and was one of the most memorable experiences of my trip. It won't take more than 10-15 minutes of your day and there is no other such memorial that I know of.

Lives lost in wars to save England -- INCLUDING ANIMALS -- are commemorated throughout the city and surrounding areas. This "war memorial" in central London is moving, dedicated to all manner of animals that died with British and Allied troops. I couldn't help but wish we in the USA respected the heroes regardless of species.
