A Memorial to the men of the Battle of Britain alongside a modern interpretation centre that brings to life the victory 'the Few' achieved over the Luftwaffe in 1940.

Projection of a video, amazing audio, various interactive features, what seems like 100's of iPad type devices embedded in the walls playing videos. Just astounding.

Thanks for that great review, Daniel. Really pleased you enjoyed your visit to The Scramble Experience. We do get lots of school parties visiting and it's something we are keen to encourage. Hope to see you back at the Memorial soon.

Fitting Memorial with great history and lovely grounds. This respectful and beautiful site is worth paying a visit. Walk the grounds and note the view of the White Cliffs from the site, then check out the exhibits indoors and out.
