Stopped off yesterday on way to an appointment in Sandgate and wish I could have stayed longer - the new visitor centre was completed in 2015 and houses a very interesting and interactive exhibition that includes the Scamble Experience film which depicts a few hours in the lives of hurricane and spitfire pilots in the summer of 1940. You can... More

Not a place to spend ages at, in February but I'm sure in the warmer months is a lovely picnic spot. The memorial wall and monument are tastefully done and the building itself is attractive. I didn't go inside to the exhibition or try the cafe but both looked quite good.

We were enroute to Ramsgate and detoured to visit the Battle of Britain Memorial. Our last visit was 4yrs ago prior to the building of the new visitor centre. Wow! It's beautiful! The building sits comfortably in its surroundings and leads out into the open area of the memorial. The weather unfortunately was against us but it was a minor... More

The site has been tastefully and thoughtfully done. Lots of interesting information, interactive items and a visual scramble experience which was interesting. The sculpture of the airman sitting in a thoughtful pose was very good. Worth a visit.

Have been here many times and always a lovely peaceful place. Usually visit the Cafe with family and take in the grounds and the views. Impeccably kept this is a fitting tribute to the heroes of the past. Two replica planes are there to see and a wall listing the 'Few' brings the reality of it all to life. You... More

The place is a fitting memorial to "the few" and reflects how vital their role was . Well done for keeping the spirit alive

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!
