it's very rare to find a dedicated statue for women, who suffered in Wars. Women have really done more than media tell and more than we have been taught in schools, this statue is memorable and the architect is so inspired and unique.

Situated in Whitehall, this is a fairly recent addition, the monument to women of World War II. Near the Cenotaph and Horseguards it is worth a viewing, to remember what these women contributed within the war effort. In the street - no admission charge.

This is a somber memorial for the women who sacrificed their lives during WWII. Unfortunately, most tourists go pas this memorial without even stopping.

This is a fine and more than overdue (2005) tribute to women who served in many capacities in World War II. It is in its rightful place among the many statues of men along Whitehall. I found it when I made a special trip to...More

A nice memorial to all the women who went through the Second World War, helping out doing men's jobs, working the land, working in munitions factories etc. Set in Whitehall close to the cenotaph.

Situated in the middle of the road in Whitehall, we passed this relatively recent (2005) memorial to the women of World War II on our walk from Westminster to Trafalgar Square. Unveiled by Queen Elizabeth as part of the 60th anniversary of the end of...More

Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
