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.

Impressive and imposing monument. Shame it took such a long time to recognise the bravery of those who fought in the most dangerous part of the services in WWII.

Moving and special. This is a worthy tribute to the brave fliers who gave so much for us few. Some say controversial. That is nonsense. I loved it.

The memorial is very well done, beautifully designed and located in a quiet area. Although it is near Hyde Park Corner, it seems to be tucked away compared to many other monuments so does not draw the same crowds. My husband's late father flew with the RAF so we specifically went looking for it, but would recommend it for anyone.... More

Althought everybody knows the contribution of RAF to the victory over Nazi Germany it is surprising (i.e. not commonly known) how much sacrifice was required to achieve that. The Memorial serves to support this understanding.

The memorial in Green Park that commemorates the crews of RAF Bomber Command in Second World War was inaugurated in 2012 to mark almost sixty thousand airmen who lost their lives defending the country. This is an amazing place that is well worth the visit, moving and inspirational.

A beautiful memorial. Do go look at it if you are around Hyde Park Corner. You won't be disappointed. The attention to detail is remarkable.

It is about time these hero's had a memorial to the loss of some 60,000 plus brave airmen who lost their lives doing their duty and what was right for those times. They have had to suffer not only denial of recognition but the effects of political correctness and expediency. Do not blame them the airmen for the mistakes and... More

Green Park is a little paradise at anytime in London BUT to have this memorial to Bomber Command is just awe inspiring. The sculptures of each crew member is absolutely amazing; each one's uniform and kit is meticulously replicated in these oversize (each must be at least 8-9' tall) giant sculptures. Indeed a very worthy memorial to all those extremely... 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.
