    Evening stroll along the banks of the River, coming down from the BigBen stumbled with this little illuminated monument but to broadcast much strength by people sculpted embossing dealing out of stone, emphasizing the Central male figure of a pilot. It is usually against this point flowers and a candle lit in honor of the fallen during this battle of the second world war where the city suffered from the nazi bombing. It is not a very large monument not very flashy, but pilla to step in a busy area, in the political centre, opposite the Ministry of defence of Great Britain.

  • Absolutely stunning memorial to everyone who fought in the Battle of Britain

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
