These Memorial gates are located near Hyde park, they stand out as they are very modern looking and the queen inaugurated them in 2002. They commemorate the soldiers of the Commonwealth who died fighting for our country.

In a city that has more monuments than any other city that I have seen this one is just ok. It's not worth going out of your way for but if you are walking by as I was then it is worth checking out.

We had enjoyed a pleasant walk through Hyde Park and we were heading for Green Park. After passing Hyde Park Corner, we came upon the Memorial Gates at the start of Constitution Hill. The memorial is in the form of a gateway entrance to Constitution Hill. It commemorates the contribution of troops from Africa, the Indian sub-continent and the Caribbean... More

Visited on a very rainy day, unfortunately. In both wars, the soldiers came from the colonies, to fight side by side with the British. This monument commemorates the fallen heroes of the former colonies. Especially, if you have ties to Asia, you should visit this monument. By coming here you will show that their contribution is not forgotten. Lastly a... More

This is a great monument that I'd defiantly recommend to anyone passing by. It's also very unique compared to some of the other war memorials you'll see in Britain as it commemorates those from Britain's empire who fought during the world wars but we're largely forgotten for years afterwards.

There's no need for me to duplicate the information provided by previous reviewers, but none of them bothered to mention that the brave people commemorated here were all volunteers. This is a different kind of memorial, which doesn't really look like 'gates' to me but is sited on both sides of this wide thoroughfare. Definitely worth a visit to pay... More

This memorial is for members of the British military from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Africa and the Caribbean. It’s at the end of Constitution Hill, by Hyde Park Corner. They consist of a set of stone pillars and a small pavilion. It’s worth taking the time to read the various inscriptions, if you’re in the area. The stones list... More

These gates are in Hyde Park, located at the Hyde Park end of Constitution Hill (close to the beginning of Knightsbridge). Inaugurated by the Queen in 2002, it commemorates those who lost their lives in the armed forces of the British Empire in WWI and WWII.

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.
