A pleasant walk to the memorial on a warm day. Not too strenuous. Took our young son and went to the Memorials Tea bar afterwards. A bit overpriced and the kitchen was shut so no food (approx 2pm on a Sunday). National Trust Members can...More

This is worth a visit whatever the season. It is a very moving memorial to those who died in action in the RAF. It also has a viewing platform with views over Heathrow.

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

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.
