Having seen this memorial on television in the 75th commemorations of the Battle of Britain I had noted to visit it. It has a superb visitor centre that houses the must visit Scramble Experience, a shop, toilets and an excellent cafe all with very friendly and helpful staff. We visited the cafe 3 times for a morning snack, lunch and... More

Interesting history, beautifully presented monument inscribed with the names of those who gave their lives, interesting exhibit inside with lots of fascinating interactive stuff to do. Well worth a visit - couples, families, teens, old folks - whoever!

This is our second visit and the memorial peaceful and it was very moving to walk around the site. Entrance to the memorial is free so I did not object to having to pay to park and I feel it is a fitting tribute to those involved in the Battle of Britain. This was my first visit since the new...

Wanted to visit to remember the few. Very impressed with the sight. Free entry to the stunning memerial wall and statue. The view was lovely on the stunning day we visited. There is also a lovely cafe upstairs with an even more stunning view. Lest we forget.

Wow..just wow. Free entry with stunning views and a great visitors centre with a cafe over looking the memorial. Carparking is £3 for the day and the sctamble experience is £6 for an adult. Staff are friendly and very informative. Without doubt a must..dont drive past.

We went here with family having done the Spitfire and Hurricane Museum, Battle of Britain Museum and finished with this wonderfully reflective area. Got there early and the weather started to turn with a fog rolling in but that just added to the whole atmosphere. It is beautifully laid out and the wall of remembrance brings a lump in your...

A wonderful tribute to our servicemen. It has views, information, a shop & Café. seating inside or out. No admission cost so please buy from the shop a memento of your visit. The grounds are mainly flat. Car Parking extensive. In the wintr. an ideal place for a coffee.
