Overview

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. A place of quiet pilgrimage coupled with a high-tech and interactive visitor centre - plus fantastic views over The Channel from our first-floor cafe. Shop and coach parking.

My partner and I were very moved by this memorial. Peaceful and in a location overlooking the channel. This is a great place for quiet reflection on the events of the past.
