Owner description: 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.

This is a beautiful and long overdue memorial. It has great atmosphere and makes you stop and think of sacrifices made. Well worth a visit.

“Eerily Lifelike”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Visited on beautiful Spring day wandering through the park. Came upon this by accident but stopped to have a look and take some pics. Very fitting tribute to brave airmen to whom we should be eternally grateful....

“A Beautiful, Fitting Tribute”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

This is a beautiful and fitting tribute to the air crew who gave their lives in the defence of this country.

A beautifully sculpted memorial with great attention to detail.

Upon viewing from the kerb-side at Hyde Park Corner, you do not get to marvel at the workmanship that has been put into the creation of the memorial. A few steps around to the entrance and you will experience a stunning tribute to the fallen heroes.

Never forget.

“Impressive”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Great life-like statue honoring Britain's flyers. It is not far from Wellington's Arch in the park and definitely worth the stroll.
