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. « less

A beautiful, incredibly respectful and very tasteful monument to those bombers in war. It really reminds you of the sacrifice of war. Definitely strikes a chord.

I can not beleive that this is allowed in the UK a memorial to war criminals. The Mass murder of my family in Dresden and the flooding of towns at the dam busters raid. This should be torn down, condoning mass murder is not right and I certainly would not donate money to this place. Made me sick to the... More

Striking memorial and very poignant given the long wait to honour the bomber pilots and crew. My wife's great uncle was a bombardier lost in action over Holland in a Lancaster.

Owing to delays on the tube, we adapted a planned route by walking through Green Park. Strolling in the afternoon sunshine, we chanced upon the Bomber Command Memorial, which we had previously heard of. This is a very worthwhile memorial to the brave men of the Royal Air Force, and a fitting tribute to the air crew who risked their... More

A tribute to the lads who served Bomber Command in the second world war. You need to visit this site at least once in a lifetime, see what these lads did.

A fine memorial, but why did we have to wait so long to get it. ( We know the answer, but cannot really believe it!). Stand there and remember.

As visitors to London from Australia we were not aware that this memorial existed and came across it by chance on a walk to the Parks. Fantastic to see Bomber Command now publically acknowledged as it was one of the most difficult roles in WW2. The memorial is tastefully done and when there its worth reflecting on the sacrifice these... More
