“Sublime and moving”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

If you have any sensibility at all you will be moved by this visit. Not only does it hit you with the scale of the animals slaughtered in war but takes you into the personal stories of individual losses. The wreathes in memory of specific animal heros are heart breaking

“Best Designed Memorial in London”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

If you come to London or live here you must visit this memorial it is so moving and so beautifully designed. It's location in the middle of Park Lane is outstanding and it is a great tribute to the animals that helped so much. Make the experience even better by reading the book of the same name you will then understand how they helped so much.

I happened upon this by accident, and ended up spending quite a bit of time looking it over. Fascinating, I'm glad I found it.

“Lets not forget the animals”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Top marks to the people who thought up this memorial, animals have played a huge role in wars and just because they are animals doesnt mean their pain and sacrifice was any less, I never even knew this memorial existed and being an animal lover it was a beautiful surprise.

A little known memorial which deserves its place. Beautifully crafted and poignant. It's nice to remember their sacrifice too.
