About
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.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.
How to get there
  • Hyde Park Corner • 4 min walk
  • Green Park • 8 min walk

PROS
* Appropriate subject to honor
* Great statues with phenomenal realistic details
* Enclosed in a hallowed Greek temple like shrine

CONS
* It is in cloe proximity to so many other memorial statues

"I VISITED THIS PLACE"...
... during my explorations around the entrance to Hyde Park. I really liked this one- the subject being remembered and honored was very noble and noteworthy and the detils of the chiseled sculpture- the faces of the airmen and the details (including their boots) were phenomenal. Visiots had placed memorial wreaths. This reminded me of the National Marines Memorial (Iwo Jima) in Arlington Virginia, directly across from DC, and that is the most amazing sculpture memorial that I've ever seen, and there has been a big competition

WAS IT WORTH THE COST?
It's free

WOULD "I VISIT THIS PLACE" AGAIN?
For sure

ADVICE
When wandering around looking at the statues and monuments here, be sure to find and visit and honor this hallowed one located within a replica of an open Greek Temple.

This is an impressive memorial and it is situated close to Hyde Park Corner. The statues inside the memorial and the inscriptions are reminders of the sacrifices of the people who served in Bomber Command. A fitting tribute.

The Bomber Command Memorial is located in Green Park and it is one of the most outstanding and dramatic memorials in the area. Well worth a look.

This magnificient Portland stone memorial in the modern classical style commemmorates the 55,573 bomber command crew who lost their lives in Word War II. It features seven aircrew - Navigator, Flight Engineer, Mid-Upper Gunner, Pilot, Bomb Aimer, Rear Gunner and Wireless Operator. The statue was unveiled by the Queen during her diamond jubillee year in 2012 and is maintained by the RAF Benevolent Fund. A thought provoking reminder of the sacrifice these young men made for our country.

This site is still quite young and the gardens will be very impressive when they mature more fully. The tributes and memorials have been carefully thought out and crafted and represent a very moving yet peaceful experience. The views over Lincoln and the Cathedral are spectacular and the quality of food served in the Cafe is excellent.

I visited the Bomber Command Memorial during the period of mourning for Queen Elizabeth 2. The memorial, which commemorates the 55,573 Bomber Command service personnel who died during WW2, was decked with flowers with loads of people taking the opportunity to pay their respects to Bomber Command as well as to Queen Elizabeth 2.

This memorial is well worth a visit.

It is dedicated to the 55,573 airmen from the United Kingdom, British Commonwealth and the Allied nations who served in RAF Bomber Command and lost their lives in the Second World War.

It is a short walk from Buckingham Palace, in Green Park.

Love the Bomber Command memorial. It’s a very powerful construction that was unbiased on the Queens Diamond Jubilee in 2012.
