The RAF Benevolent Fund is proud and privileged to be the custodian of the new Bomber Command Memorial in central London. The memorial has been built to be modern, yet classical, in Portland stone. At its heart are the bronze sculptures of a Bomber Command aircrew. Within the memorial, the space is open to the sky with an opening designed to allow light to fall directly onto sculptures of the aircrew.

Wanted to visit this memorial as I have a uncle who was part of bomber command. If it wasn't for these brave men where would we be now? Thank you all

Belated tribute to the men who helped keep Britain free and took the war to Germany and showed what a "blitz" was all about!!

Enjoyed seeing a beautifully made statue. We should be proud of our heritage and ensure that we see as much as we can.

Having an uncle who was in Bomber Command made this even more memorable. Just down from Hyde Park Corner and a MUST see

Great to visit this monument, in memory of those who served in Bomber Command in World War 2. Worth visiting if you are in London to pay your respects to the fallen.

Situated near the Wellington Arch beside Hyde Park stands this most moving and imposing memorial unveiled by HM the Queen in 2012. It is almost worthy memorial to so many brave and selfless airmen whose bravery contributed hugely to our freedom. It is a Memorial that you should endeavour to visit when in London.

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
