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...

Lovely memorial, fantastic staff. Had coffee and hot chocolate and sandwiches in the cafe that overlooks the memorial. Weather was really bad, rained hard, but cafe was warm and coffee was hot!! Highly recommended!!

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.

Since my last visit the brilliant “Scramble Experience” has been established in the Wing. Unfortunately, I really should have allowed more time. There are plenty of screens and displays to examine and interact with. Snacks are available on the upper floor café with views over the Memorial and grounds. There is a pay-and-display car park and there is a charge... More

We have visited this attraction before on a couple of occasions but have always been there too close to closing time to go into the wings experience. This visit though we made sure we arrived in plenty of time and we were certainly not disappointed. It really made us all think just how grateful we were to have had these... More

Great advice, Peterperfik. Really glad you enjoyed touring The Scramble Experience; we are very proud of it and it's great to read your comments. Because of the very modern way the information is presented, it suits a wide audience. Youngsters love the hand-on attractions and adults can dig as deep into the available material as they like. You can spend... More
