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.

10mins stroll from Green Park tube station brings you here. A wonderful sculpture that allows quiet contemplation of the courage and sacrifice given. It has been a long time coming but this recognition of their service is a fitting memorial.

So moving and such amazing sculpture of the crew of a WW11 bomber. We were very fortunate to be at the unveiling by Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth and other members of the Royal Family.

This is a stunning tribute to the heroes of Bomber Command. It's very close to Apslet House and Hyde Park so don't miss it.

A beautiful memorial to those very brave boys that never returned to their homes and countries. Their memory finally enshrined near to the bombed city of London and yet in a peaceful part of the park...

This memorial is an advertised 7 minute walk, towards the city, from the Green Park Underground Railway Station. When you arrive , the monument is easily recognised. It stands before the solid architecture of city buildings, with a busy road with the hum of traffic behind it , and a landscape of peaceful green stretching out before it. Take time... More

I love this place. A truly magnificent and influential part of our history. Nothing like seeing where and how the Battle of Britain was prepared and won. Thank you Churchill

One of so many memorials dotted around central London this one is worth a stop. It's located in a beautiful spot and is a great tribute to those who served in Bomber Command and suffer horrifically throughout the war.

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.
