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.

Came here on a still September morning and it is a stylish memorial to the thousands of airmen who died without trace over WW2 and after. Tranquil, simple, humbling, but so many many names and these are not all of them

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

A truly superb venue to spend some quiet reflective time. Highly recommend a walk up to the top as the views are breathtakingly beautiful.

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
