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

The central sculpture is outstanding. The structure timeless. Not a destination outside of an event but worth a tour stop to admire and pay respects.

Fantastic tribute to a time when Britain was at its best and we were a proud nation. Now many of us seem prouder of other nations than our own which is a disgrace. God save the queen.

It's an emotional visit especially for loved ones, but everyone should see this beautiful memorial, that took almost 70 years to recognise their incredibly heroic contribution for our freedom. Very evocative and... More

A Fantastic tribute to Bomber Command, elegant and respectful, fitting. It was also a pleasure to meet a 94 year old former member of Bomber Command, visiting the memorial for the first time, it was an honour to shake his hand

This memorial is an oversized ugly architectural hodge podge that spoils the view of the park beyond. It is not worth making a special effort to see it.
