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.

“Stark Memorial”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

A grand memorial to all the bomber pilots of the RAF that bombed Germany night after night. The average life span was 14 missions out of the 30 required to transfer out. Right across from the Hard Rock Cafe and just down from the Ritz. Sits adjacent to a nice park.

“At Last!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

What a fitting tribute to all those young men who gave their lives for our great country. It was worth waiting for as it conveys everything about Bomber Command.

“About time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

It was about time that the British recognized what impact Bomber Command had on WW2. Although it is new it looks dated because of the period it depicts.

The detail captured by this statue is superb. Well worth a visit and a lovely walk through Green Park to it. Very moving.

“Moving Memorial”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Great memorial to the brave men who flew bombing missions during WWII. If you are a history buff, it's a must visit. Short walk to Buckingham Palace. Don't miss Wellington Arch close by. After the changing of the Guard, the horse guards rode right by here and through Wellington Arch.
