It has been in place for over 10 years now but is still relatively unknown. Most people will only have noticed it from the top deck of a bus driving along Park Lane. It actually seems rather marooned, situated as it is between the carriageways of Park Lane. I last saw it yesterday when the tour coach taking our Royal... More

This is a thought provoking memorial to all the animals lost in the two World Wars. A simple inscription states 'They Had No Choice'. I must confess that I had not heard of this memorial and found it by chance at the top of Park Lane close to Marble Arch. Well worth a 'Look See'.

Around the corner of Marble Arch one can find this monument. the inscription "THEY HAD NO CHOICE" is a simple truth and gave me some thought.

This memorial shows a variety of animal contributions during wars. It is small and would be fitting if larger. However the website provides additional information

A very moving memorial to the numerous animals who gave their lives to various wars, through no choice of their own. If you are on a tourist bus heading up Park Lane, look out for this on the central reservation as you approach Marble Arch. It is on the junction with Upper Brook St just after the Grosvenor House Hotel.... More

We came across this Memorial just by accident, what a shame it is not in a more prominent location. It was very interesting to read their history and to learn about these animals and how they were used in the war. It is adjacent to Hyde Park between Park Lane. Its makes you realise how important the animals were in... More

How to do justice to this memorial to animals in war? It’s brilliantly designed, and brilliantly located at the side of Hyde Park yet visible to Park Lane pedestrians. The pack horse looks exactly as I would have imagined it would have looked in World War One - exhausted, without hope, just like everyone else involved in it. Most people... More

What a lovely tribute to the animals which were used in world wars. I don't know the sculpture's name and don't know how long its been on display, for we just spotted this while walking up park Lane heading for Hyde Park Winter Wonderland event. Its certainly an eye inspiring sculpture.

I saw a monument with animals while riding in a taxi on Park Lane and made it a point to visit it. Upon checking with the concierge at the hotel, I was informed that the monument in question was the Animals in War Memorial. Early one morning I walked to the memorial, located on the edge of Hyde Park, and... More

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
