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

This is not a glorification of the policy or bombing nor of its successes. Its a memorial to the fallen, and it's majestic.

I thought the memorial was so moving. It is hard to imagine now ,what those young men went through ! I believe that this is a must for everyone to see ,plus it is in a prime spot to take in Londons parks such as Hyde ,green,and St James .

A really touching tribute to a great bunch of men. Love seeing things commemorating the efforts made in wars past and present and this is no different. Very nicely presented.

I have met a ww2 Lancaster pilot and it was a pleasure to listen to his stories. They were pretty much slated and never seen as heroes of ww2 because of their bombing of cities but at last they have been remembered.

Beautifully executed memorial to the young men of Bomber command, nearly 50% of whom perished. Whatever you think about the ethics of mass bombing should be directed to the men who ordered it, not to the brave souls who executed it.

I can understand that this is a highlight for some and the contribution of these brave men is clear, but if you have little time in London, this is not a site I would put highly on the list. There is a group of statues of 6 (?) men, set up so high that you mainly see their boots. There... More

Anyone who has any interest at all in the RAF's action in WW2 should pay their respects here - possibly London's latest memorial, one to all those who undertook sorties across German territory during the war. Just stand and read... More

What a huge monument to the RAF Bombers in WW2. Beautifully sculpted, every crease and wrinkle depicted so well. The notes that people leave are very personal and emotive. Nice that it is erected opposite the RAF Club in Picadilly Road
