Overview

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.

You definitely won't forget your visit to this war memorial. Dedicated to the brave airmen of the RAF Bomber Command who lost their lives in World War II.

I saw this for the first time. We go to London frequently but not always Hyde Park area. It is huge and very moving to see in person

an attractive and moving display. My father was in bombers from 38-46 and lost a lot of good friends. It is a wonderful memorial to those who didn't make it.

One of the more impressive war memorials in the city. Towering above the park overlooking the palace. Don't miss this one.

An amazing group statue superbly created. Each face could be someone you knew wrapped up in their thoughts of the last few hours and relieved to be back. The well creased flying trousers and uniforms from sitting for hours in a cramped position, each uniform...More

This is a beautiful monument to great heroes. The architecture is great and towers over you. Very well designed with great detail At the top of Green Park opposite the Wellington memorial Felt a little away from it and should be more prominently displayed

Whether you see the Blitz as sad or heroic what the British people and the RAF accomplished should never be forgotten. This is a classy monument. Pause and Wonder.

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

Its free and just stands in Green Park. Only the back of the monument is visible from the road, you need to go into the park to see the front. If you get out at Green Park Tube on the Ritz side of Piccadilly, go into Green... More
