Overview
More
The Air Forces Memorial at Runnymede commemorates by name over 20,000 airmen who were lost in the Second World War during operations from bases in the United Kingdom and North and Western Europe, and who have no known graves. They served in Bomber, Fighter, Coastal, Transport, Flying Training and Maintenance Commands, and came from all parts of the Commonwealth. Some were from countries in continental Europe which had been overrun but whose airmen continued to fight in the ranks of the Royal Air Force. This Memorial overlooks the River Thames on Cooper's Hill at Englefield Green between Windsor and Egham on the A308, 4 miles from Windsor.

I always try to get to this place at least once a year, very tranquil (as to be expected), always worth the walk to pay respects. The climb to the top of the towers to view the surrounding counties is amazing on a clear day.

The building is very much a competent work of its time. The highlight comes when you climb the narrow staircase by the chapel and emerge on the roof with a spectacular view of the Thames valley.

I visited the Air Forces Memorial last year on a gloomy day. There was renovation work going on and although I got a lot out of the visit I left wanting more. I went back on a gloriously sunny Sunday and was certainly glad I...More

Hi! It really depends on your budget. Your best base if you’re in the area for more than a couple of days would be Windsor. Failing that, the closest hotel is the Runnymede on the Thames which is close by. A regular bus... More
