  • Located on the cliff top and flanked by full size models of a Spitfire and a Hurricane, the visitors center has a great interactive Battle of Britain display, gift shop and a well stocked cafĂ© for snacks and drinks. Staff are helpful, friendly and informative and the whole place caters for disabled visitors. The memorial is a pilot in flying gear, sitting on the centre of giant three blade propeller with all Battle of Britain Squadron crests on the hub. Behind the memorial is a wall of remembrance, listing the names of the few who paid the ultimate price for freedom in the 1940 battle of the air. On a good day, the view from the outside balcony over the Channel is second to none. Well worth a visit.
  • A worthwhile visit to a truly fitting tribute to the "few". Would thoroughly recommend people visit here at least once in their life and encourage their children to go as well.
  • Brilliant and very moving. Wonderful location on a sunny day. Just stop and stare out over the channel and view the shipping and just imagine how it felt for those young men in 1940. Don't miss it if you are nearby.
  • Wow what a wonderful experience. Great balance between 'fun interactive' and 'soberingly moving'. Something for all ages
  • Honestly, what a place. The visitor centre is absolutely brilliant and well worth the entry cost. We all owe history at least that much.
