This award-winning museum is so well done and features ‘The Few’, those flyers who really helped stop Hitler’s advance on Britain after the Dunkirk attack and the successfully invasion of France. About 3,000 pilots lost their lives during the Battle of Britain which lasted about 6 months and ended on the last day of October in 1940. In addition to... More

just visited the new museum at the site a truly wonderful experience and tribute to the men and women that helped us to win the Battle of Britain. The grounds are free to wander around but the Scramble experience has a charge but worth every penny and going to a great cause.

this was a return visit for us but a first for our friends. The Wing is new to all of us and the reception, museum and restaurant are fantastic and the volunteer staff are brilliant. The memorial is as it was when we visited some years ago but really conveys the hopes and wishes of a generation that we should... More

A tremendous spot to honour the few! An awesome place to spend a little time in quiet contemplation of the sacrifices these guys made for this island...I was very lucky to meet some of these men in their latter years and found them all to be very gracious and humble...this place is a fitting tribute and definitely worth a visit...

We visited the Battle of Britain Memorial with our friends from Newcastle. It was sad to see how many men lost their lives on the Memorial Wall. We didn't realize how many squadrons were based in England, naturally being from Gravesend my Husband looked up Ginger Lacey who was a well known Ace of the Battle of Britain and was... More

If you love history you must visit this place. The Scramble Experience is one for the whole family. The memorial wall and the memorial itself are humbling and make you realize just what we owe to that wartime generation. Visit the new visitors centre and the cafe where the staff are lovely.

This is a short review as I don't think that I can do this justice. The Battle of Britain memorial is sited on an old WWII anti aircraft post on the cliffs above Folkestone. The memorial is in the shape of a propeller and central boss inside a raised turf wall so one can look down and see it properly... More

Very good, beautiful memorial. well set up with nice friendly staff and good café with nice clean toilets. Reasonably priced entry to "the scramble" experience which was very interactive and thought provoking. Building works going on near the spitfire, hurricane replicas but I assume this is to improve this area/building.

This is a must visit for anyone interested military history and military aviation. The Battle of Britain was the most significant event if WW II for the British. Had German bombers got thru, the result of the war would have been different. This is a memorial to the "few", a gallant bunch of young fighter pilots who stemmed the German... More
