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.

As an airforce brat I was delighted to come across this memorial. Beautifully sculpted it celebrates all those brave men who took to the skies to keep us safe. Not a tourist destination but non the less make a quick visit if you are nearby.

This is a really emotive memorial that should have been built decades ago. It's a beautiful tribute and worth the walk to the very end of Green Park to see it.

I found the Bomber Command Memorial especially memorable. The statues of 7 Bomber air pilots are striking, they are so big and so detailed. It really stands out. The Bomber Command monument is dedicated to the 55.573 airmen from the United Kingdom, the British Commonwealth...More

My father was an RAF bomber co-pilot navigator in WWII. So this visit was long overdue. Impressive memorial. A little out of the way. I'm glad I went. It could use a seat opposite.

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.

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
