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.

A fitting tribute to those young airman who gave their lives for our country. It is good that they should be remembered.

It was a long time coming but Bomber Command eventually received due recognition. Bomber command did more than their share of winning the second world war.

On the day before, we had explored a small corner of Green Park, that we had only passed by, in a hurry to get somewhere else. It was enlightening. We usually cut through Green Park, to walk without the crowds on Piccadilly, and enter the...More

A long overdue memorial to the bravest of the brave. Never mind the minority that complain about Bomber Command - they only have that voice of freedom and independence due to the sacrifices of these young chaps. It's an exquisite memorial and tastefully done. Very...More

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.

Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which

a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
