I'm sure there are milions of people that pass through here and don't even notice this is here, let alone a memorial. It's an important one and it's quite interesting. If you are walking by, it's worth taking a look at the countries commemorated upon it.

The memorial was inaugurated in 2002 commemorating the soldiers of the British Empire coming from five regions of the Indian sub-continent, Africa and Caribbean. This is a simple but important monument for almost five million volunteers who served in both World Wars.

These Memorial gates are located near Hyde park, they stand out as they are very modern looking and the queen inaugurated them in 2002. They commemorate the soldiers of the Commonwealth who died fighting for our country.

In a city that has more monuments than any other city that I have seen this one is just ok. It's not worth going out of your way for but if you are walking by as I was then it is worth checking out.

We had enjoyed a pleasant walk through Hyde Park and we were heading for Green Park. After passing Hyde Park Corner, we came upon the Memorial Gates at the start of Constitution Hill. The memorial is in the form of a gateway entrance to Constitution Hill. It commemorates the contribution of troops from Africa, the Indian sub-continent and the Caribbean... More

Visited on a very rainy day, unfortunately. In both wars, the soldiers came from the colonies, to fight side by side with the British. This monument commemorates the fallen heroes of the former colonies. Especially, if you have ties to Asia, you should visit this monument. By coming here you will show that their contribution is not forgotten. Lastly a... More

This is a great monument that I'd defiantly recommend to anyone passing by. It's also very unique compared to some of the other war memorials you'll see in Britain as it commemorates those from Britain's empire who fought during the world wars but we're largely forgotten for years afterwards.

There's no need for me to duplicate the information provided by previous reviewers, but none of them bothered to mention that the brave people commemorated here were all volunteers. This is a different kind of memorial, which doesn't really look like 'gates' to me but is sited on both sides of this wide thoroughfare. Definitely worth a visit to pay... More

This memorial is for members of the British military from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Africa and the Caribbean. It’s at the end of Constitution Hill, by Hyde Park Corner. They consist of a set of stone pillars and a small pavilion. It’s worth taking the time to read the various inscriptions, if you’re in the area. The stones list... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to 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 highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
