The monument seems bigger in photos than what it is in real life but it's still definitely great size. The details that were put into it are great, it's truly a worthy monument and a good place to visit.

Another fine RAF Memorial, it cant be forgotten how the Battle for the Skies was the crucial part of WW2, and if these heroes hadn't put their bravery to the test, who knows how life would be in these days. Long may they be remembered.

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
