This is worth a visit whatever the season. It is a very moving memorial to those who died in action in the RAF. It also has a viewing platform with views over Heathrow.

If you are visiting the Magna Carta monument(free) then the Air Force memorial(free) is a short walk away. Parking by the river Thames and well signposted. Both attractions are open air sites.

We made the short diversion from the Thames tow path to visit this memorial and well worth it. Dedicated to more than 20,000 Air force men from across the commonwealth who were missing in action. You truly get the scale of the awful loss from...More
