Overview

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.

A beautiful memorial to heros of the war, very impressive and moving. Take the time to look, reflect and thank!

I frequently stay for a while at the memorial. Its foundation was long overdue to cause us to remember that Bomber Command had the largest casualty rate oif any of the UK armed forces in WW2.

Very well done memorial to the men and woman who sacrificed so much in WWII. London has memorials for all the services that fought in all wars. Many of them can be visited in half a day if you don't mind doing some walking.

After the fall of France and the rescue of the BEF from Dunkirk it was the RAF (and a few Yanks and Canucks) who stood between democracy and facism. This monument commemorates their sacrifice and valor during the war's darkest moments. Please, come to pay...More

I always take a minute here when in London due to having had family serve with Bomber Command. I'm glad they finally got the recognition they deserved and make a conscious effort to pay my respects at this Memorial

We visited the memorial at night, which was a very moving experience. All of us owe it to those brave "few" to visit and honour them at this memorial.

It was about time for recognition of nearly 66000 crew of the various crews of Bomber Command who lost their lives in WW11. 2012 was a great year, this is a must see poignant memorial to those who perished many miles from their homes and...More

A large sculpture, very detailed, of a bomber crew, set within a new colonnade. A great memorial for the huge numbers of airmen who served in the RAF and Commonwealth Air Forces

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
