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

Finally we have a fitting tribute to the thousands of air crew that gave their lives in the struggle agains Hitler's Germany. The characters portrayed on the monument are beautifully scupted, each with his own indelible character stamped on the metal.

We saw this while on a bus tour during the day but you only see the backside as the sculptures are facing toward the park. Went back to see it during the night, it was beautiful. We also happened to be there on the anniversary of 100 years from WWI so there were poppy wreaths there as well.

I only just saw this yesterday for the first time- I sought it out as I had an uncle who flew with the RAF during WW2 and I found it a very moving memorial to those who died. I thought it was also designed and made with great skill- worth seeing.

Although on a busy road there seemed a certain peace within the commemoration area. To finally see recognition for the thousands who risked and in many cases lost their lives is very moving.

It took too long for this memorial to be commissioned, but it was worth the wait for those of us who are privileged to visit and pay our respects. The lattice work design of the roof is cleverly taken from the geodesic design of the Wellington Bomber, so bringing in a link to Barnes Wallis, the brilliant designer, which to... More

Stumbled upon this memorial by accident and was quite taken with it. The figures are very imposing and intimidating, which may be part of the design. A great find in London.

This memorial is really well done - architecture is magnificent but in no way overstated. a fitting tribute to those thousands of brave souls. Well worth the walk to the top of Piccardily.
