Bomber Command Memorial - Review
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.

Bomber Command Memorial, London Reviews
The Bomber Command Memorial is one of several commemorative monuments in this area of the city. This one in particular is quite impressive to see. Here you will find a well designed memorial building by Liam O'Connor that is dedicated to the 55,573 aircrew who lost their lives during WWII. The memorial was only recently unveiled to the public in 2012. Within the open air structure with large columns, you can see the attractive 2.7 meter sculpture, created by Philip Jackson, featuring seven crewman, who have just finished a flight mission. The sculpture is quite detailed and worthy of time to admire. It has the ability to invoke strong feelings and emotion. Overall, we very much enjoyed seeing the Bomber Command Memorial and find it to be a nice addition to the collection of nearby monuments found at the SE Corner of Hyde Park. In our view, this memorial is well worth seeking out if you intend to spend time in this area of the city. Other similar monuments nearby, at the SE corner of Hyde Park, include the Wellington Arch, Duke of Wellington Statue, Royal Artillery Memorial, Machine Gun Corp Memorial, New Zealand Memorial, Australia Memorial.
A poignant reminder of all the brave young airmen who lost their lives in WW2. Well designed. Very Respectful. Easy access. Worth a visit.
Amazing and fitting work to honour these guys. Late to arrive but most welcome.
Gorgeous memorial that pays homage to the thousands of brave people who served in bomber command. Whether they flew or supported the operations, it is a fair monument to those who sacriced so much so we might live in peace.
A very moving and humbling experience to visit this long overdue memorial. Lest we forget.
