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.

It's things like this that put the GREAT in Great Britain. Sends shivers down my spine to stand by this and to have a chance to say thank to so many brave people.

This is an excellent memorial to the Bomber pilots and Crew of WW2. My wifes father was in the RAF flying Lancaster Bombers, over 30 missions, and he made it through the war, great achievement

Night after night, the young men of RAF Bomber Command climbed into their aircraft knowing full well they had a better than even chance of not returning. Yet they did it, without complaint or hesitation. The bombing offensive was our only way of prosecuting the war for many years and these men obeyed orders without question. This memorial is long...

Just across from Hyde Park and Green Park and worth the walk to get to it. Good to remember what England went through in the early 1940's

This was incredible to see. The expertise of these figures is fantastic. You just want to stand and look at these figures - they are so beautiful and realistic.

This memorial and the statues are amazing. It was shocking to read that 55,573 airman from the UK, British Commonwealth and Allied nations who served in the RAF Bomber Command lost their lives during the Second World War. I liked the RAF inscription with the badge and motto 'per ardua ad astra' (through adversity to the stars). I think it... More

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.
