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.

The Brave Aircrews of Bomber Command

An excellent memorial to all those brave aircrews who showed dedication in defeating the enemy. Many were killed or badly injured in the process. We must remember them.

This is a very nice memorial with lifelike statues of the amazing men who flew in Bomber Command. Combine with a walk past Buckingham Palace and Green Park.

it has taken us far too long to do this- the memorial is incredibly moving - this is one of the UKs and actually the free worlds must visit sites- to reflect on what those who gave, enabled us to have.

A long overdue addition to the memorials in London. This one has been beautifully done, the centrepiece statue is incredible. You have to visit this - even if passing by.

Those who know the history of Bomber command will know how shameful it was that we had to wait so long for this memorial but it is arguably one of the most stunning in London. Particularly moving are the figures of the Bomber crew, larger than life and beautifully sculpted.

I visited with someone with a family connection. It is a very simple yet fitting memorial in an area where there are other colonial and commonwealth memorials and worth a trip if you're passing.

This monument has left me with a firm imprint of admiration of the bomber crews who participated in the WW ll conflict. The sculptured figures look so real with faces clearly showing the stress experienced by these brave men.

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.
