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.

Easy to miss

Try not to miss this. Pay your respects on your way to Buckingham Palace. Thought provoking. Didn't even know it was there.

Incredibly moving monument for the brave young men who gave their lives that the world should be free. Just stand, look, admire, be thankful - and weep for their loss.

If you are visiting London and especially the area near Buckingham Palace and Green Park, spend a few minutes walking towards Hyde Park corner and visiting Bomber Command Memorial. A beautifully sculptured memorial with careful attention to every detail that evokes memories and respect for the men of Bomber Command and their contribution and sacrifice during World War 2.

This is a truly wonderful memorial to the brave participants who lost their lives in World War Two. It is very moving and is in a very accessible part of London on the corner of Piccadilly and Constitution Hill.

We specifically visited Green Park to see this memorial which is so magnificently done it brought us to tears. The Bomber Command Memorial commemorates the 55,573 who died while serving in the Bomber Command during the Second World War and was a promise I made to my Dad that we would visit and take video and photo's to bring home...

World War II was not won by weak men and women but by ordinary people who brought forth the strength to do extraordinary deeds. The Bomber Command Memorial is a relatively recent addition to the various statues etc. that commemorate their sacrifices and achievements. The techniques used by Bomber Command to subdue the enemy remain controversial, but they surely seemed... More

This memorial is on the out skirts of Hyde park at a fairly busy round about. But it still a place where you can have a quiet moment to reflect on the great sacrifice that the men and women of this country made in the name of freedom

This was a poignant visit just after Remembrance Sunday. This is a beautiful but simple memorial situated on Piccadilly near Hyde Park. We owe the bomber crews a huge debt which can never be repaid except through remembrance.

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.
