  • A simple and very effective memorial to the few. As other reviewers have mentioned, visiting on a day with a blue sky enables you to see it best, in context with the view out over the channel. Entry t...  more »
  • Decided to stop off here on the way to South Foreland Lighthouse. The car park is reasonably priced, I only stayed an hour, and cost was £1. Entry to the memorial is free, and there is a gift shop, te...  more »

  • The memorial itself, in a beautiful setting, is a very dignified and moving tribute to those who gave so much for us. Seeing all of those names in one place and the scale of the sacrifice is simply overwhelming. The museum is very well done, informative, educational, and importantly it is welcoming to children, with interactive exhibits, so that they can begin to understand the importance and relevance of the Battle of Britain. Highly recommend to anyone.
  • Attended the memorial day yesterday (9/7/17) and had to review as it was such a fantastic day. The weather was very hot and it was great to see the decision made to allow the cadets to sit down as the temperature increased. The service was very well delivered to "the few" and the display from the Spitfire and Hurricane were a sight to behold. Very well done to all who were in the organising team, a thoroughly enjoyable and poignant day.
  • Sunny day, amazing site to just spend time to think & be thankful. Then, all of a sudden i hear the distinctive sound & a spitfire flys over. Goosebumps
  • Stunning memorial in a beautiful location. Moving and inspiring, with a wonderful rooftop cafe served by some lovely ladies.
  • So very humbling. I could feel so much emotion and almost imagine the fear and dread that would have been felt as the sound of planes came over. Having just watched the film Dunkirk I cannot begin to imagine the view from here.
