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.

This monument is imposing and quite moving. With a visit. Not sure sure why it took so long to erect something to commemorate the contribution of Bomber Command bit better late than never.

So memorable, imposing and a truly fitting and lifelike memorial to these brave men. No words can describe the craftsmanship of this imposing site and the positioning of such in a perfect London setting. Breath taking.

This is an important memorial to an equally important aspect of history. Beautifully done tribute to those who did so much for us.

I just went for a few minutes from our visit to Hyde Park; the statue is very well made and detailed, and the memorial has all the names of the Command members. As other reviewers have said, we should all pay respect in this memorial and it's well worth a visit.

This memorial took a long time to be commissioned but the wait was worth it. The bronze statues are amazing and the whole place has a feeling of serenity. A must-see for tourists and Briton's alike. Don't forget your camera

It's a tragic, but almost forgotten part of WW2 history. British Bomber Command flew thousands of perilous missions, but never got their deserved recognition for bravery during 70 years. Why? Arthur "Bomber" Harris was directed by Chirchill to take the war to Germany, and did it in a most over-zealous manner. His mistaken targetting of German cities during the 1,000-bomber... More

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.
