The RAF Benevolent Fund is proud and privileged to be the custodian of the new Bomber Command Memorial in central London. The memorial has been built to be modern, yet classical, in Portland stone. At its heart are the bronze sculptures of a Bomber Command aircrew. Within the memorial, the space is open to the sky with an opening designed to allow light to fall directly onto sculptures of the aircrew.

This memorial was on my itinerary during my visit of the London war memorials. A good place to stand still and think for a moment and remembrance the brave men and women who gave their lives for our freedom. The statues are of a very high detailed quality and there are many other interesting memorials nearby to see.

I have heard of this memorial for quite some time and it always makes my heart skip a beat to come across something so wonderful that I never thought I would get the chance to see. Very impressed with the memorial. Poignant messages at the airmen's feet. Definitely need to have a look and pay respects if visiting Hyde Park.

Being retired RAAF this Memorial was so solemn, and a simple but relevant Memorial to the heroes of Bomber Command

Very long overdue in its building. The government should be quite ashamed of itself in not providing this memorial in the 1950s. A must visit to anyone who values our freedoms.

An incredibly moving memorial to some of the people of Britain who held the Nazis at bay against great odds and with great sacrifice. It brings tears to my eyes just to recall it.

Can be easily missed because situated in Green Park far away from the popular part of Green Park and it more than a stone's throw from Hyde Park Corner. Worth going to visit because the memorial is impressive, a fitting memorial to all the people who were part of Bomber Command who lost their lives during WWII.

During our visit to London we found this memorial along with a number of other sculptures and statues. If any of your family members were in the RAF you should visit on a summer day.

One gazes up at this magnificent tribute to Bomber Command and can only feel humbled and so grateful to those incredibly brave men who saved our country. It's so lifelike and ineffably moving. A very fine addition to londons statuary.

This is a free to visit memorial in Green Park, London, close to Hyde Park Underground Tube Station. A simple stone structure protects a bronze group of airmen in their flying gear, with amazing detail. The statue is not just to the British men who formed Bomber Command in the last World War, but also to the men from the... More

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
