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

This monument is a tribute to the animals of war. It is a piece of art that makes you think how much they sacrificed as well as our fallen soldiers. it has two faces to it with a horse and his dog out front with a floral garden behind and then other animals from another aspect. the work put into...

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.
