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.

Thought provoking memorial, honouring those who served in Bomber Command. A fitting memorial for the airmen doing their duty to help free Europe from the tyranny of Hitler's Third Reich.

This memorial was so over due to commerate all those who died with Bomber Command. The memorial itself is very clever. Not only are the scupltures enthrawling and capturing a very specific moment in time, it is how they are set. Look up and will note that the roof is open to the heavens directly above them. But when looking... More

The Bomber Command Memorial is easy to find, just across the Street from Hyde Park Corner, on Picadilly Rd at Green Park. While you are there, take a few minutes and read the little notes on the many wreaths and Crosses that have been placed by families and others grateful for the sacrifice ...... very moving!

This is another great place to go and see while in London. You will see how many people died to save the country. You will also see how they keep the Germans away.

I've been lucky to have my luncheon within sight of these wonderful memorials that evoke both the tragedy and history of war. It was especially beautiful during remembrance days where poppies can be found everywhere reminding us how much blood must have been spilled.

It was being water blasted when we were there so was a little difficult. Do look at both sides and check out the roof, it contains metal from actual planes

At long last bomber command recognised with this beautifully designed and located memorial. It is worth visiting and as en route and in the area of so many other points of interest in London it is simple to do so.

Firstly, this is "not" an attraction, so on that point i agree with the detractors and those that feel the need to belittle it's worth, but that's where it ends.......how any of you can moan that this statue "spoils the view of the park" is beyond me, you are not here to look at the park, and even if you...

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.
