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.

Gorgeous area and memorial. A solemn place next to the sea. The white cliffs are so beautiful. Definitely stop and visit.

What a fitting memorial to the few, not much for children but interesting, especially if you have family members named on the wall.
