Owner description: 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.

Bomber Command has finally got a memorial that honours those brave young men who died in such large quantity. It is a good design and can only leave you moved beyond measure by the many items that are posted there,

A beautiful monument to a generation compelled to gallantry. Well maintained and obviously loved by those veterans and their families for whom this was a long overdue recognition.

We have been to many fund raising advents in the lead up to building this memorial. Also met some of the crew who flew during the war, which was a privilege. What a wonderful memorial. May people there from all over the world with stories to tell.

We enjoyed a stroll across Green Park on a chilly Saturday afternoon and came upon this wonderful memorial to the heroic airmen of World War II. Such a staggering loss of young lives. What an impressive and moving tribute. The statues are very detailed, we enjoyed just wandering around them and taking in the atmosphere.

As the West Midlands office for the War Memorials Tust, it was something of an obligatory pilgrimage for me, and I was not disappointed, somehow all memorials fall short of really summing up their sacrifice and our gratitude, however, this was fitting, worthwhile visiting and reviewing if only to encourage others to learn more about these things. Go, visit, respect,... More

A fitting memorial to those in Bomber Command who fell in the War. Well worth a visit, just a shame it took so long to honour these hero 's.

Ive been here a few times and each time I see something different. This is a great monument and tribute to the men of Bomber Command and the sheer scale of it is wonderful. It's a peaceful place despite the location and I love the detail of the men's faces. I have taken many photos of this tribute and it... More
