Bomber command is a memorial with sculptures of the aircrew. The sculptures look detailed and elegant. They are very well sculpted in classic Portland stone. These sculptures have such a realistic touch to them that you’d feel they’re about to come to life any moment. The beautiful architecture left the roof open so these idols stand right under the sky with light beaming onto them directly. The memorial is a tribute to those who fought for the freedom we enjoy today. Make sure you visit here with due respect in your heart. Also, visit nearby attractions in the city which are covered in London itinerary 5 days.

Located on the north western corner of Green Park,this monument commemorates the Royal Air Forces crews serving in the second World War and to mark the sacrifice of 55,573 aircrew from Britain, Canada, Czechoslovakia, Poland and other countries of the Commonwealth, as well as civilians of all nations killed during raids. The memorial was Designed by Liam O'Connor & the sculpture,by Philip Jackson. Queen Elizabeth II unveiled the memorial on 28 June 2012, the year of her Diamond Jubilee.
Honouring the intrepid and courageous crews charged with the thankless task of relentlessly bombing enemy assets. Always controversial. This belated homage to their sacrifice now counts amongst London’s great monuments. Iconic in the true sense of the word.
It is a sober but appreciative memory and recognition of the many soldiers and civilians who sacrificed their lives to the sadness and agony of their families who lost their husbands, wives, sons and and daughters and loved ones. As a soldier myself, I feel for all of them.
It was great memorial statues. I heard about it from Google maps. I planed to go when I go to London. Early morning I visit this memorial. Definitely everybody has to see.
Poignant reminder of all the brave young airmen who lost their lives in WW2. Well designed. Very respectful. Easy access. Worth a visit.
