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.

My grandfather fought in bomber command as a tail gunner at the end of ww2. We stumbled across the monument when walking across Green Park on the way from hotel in belgaravia to launch in soho. Frilly moving and whilst acknowledges the scarifice also acknowledges all those that lost their lives. Impressively designed and built (crafted)

A stunning statue and fitting tribute to such bravery. We visit the memorial whenever we're in the area and I always leave with a tear in my eye as the statues are so compelling.

Looking at this memorial to the brave men of Bomber Command makes me realise that we cannot praise these brave men enough for their service to our great country in our hour of need.

Well worth a visit to see, shame it took so long, should have been built years ago. The statues of the aircrew are amazing.

This Memorial is a fine and fitting tribute to the many airmen of Bomber Command who risked, and lost, their lives fighting for peace. The detail is perfect and shows well the humanity behind tales of bravery. Whenever I pass this Memorial it's rare that nobody is there appreciating it. Beautiful and extremely moving.

A really impressive monument for those who perished against the Nazis for bomber command. It took so long for a memorial to be built for these buys because of the controversial aspects of what they did in the war. However, under the orchestration of the late Robin Gibb (yes - he of the Bee Gees) a campaign for the monument... More

I came upon this memorial whilst running around Green Park, it is up near Appsley House/Hyde Park Gate. It is particularly moving and brings to mind the loss of young life that was needed to preserve our way of life. The bronze statuary is superb. It is a short detour only from many of London's big tourist attractions but well... 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.
