    The New Zealand war memorial at Hyde Park corner, were placed in link with the passage of the Park. So draw a nice looking near the equestrian statue of tourists were taking pictures in there. Of course instead of war and New Zealand, is a memorial for the New Zealand took part in the war as the British Commonwealth.

    A poignant memorial to the NZ fallen. Easy to find from Hyde Park tube, don't just walk past on your way to somewhere else. Stop and reflect.  more »

    Near the equestrian statue of the Duke of Wellington and the momentous Wellington monument on the "traffic island" between Hyde and Green park you find this extraordinary simplistic Memorial.  more »

  • I really love this memorial, from the distance or walking among the standards. Each standard is formed from two intersecting plates of bronze and, when seen from above and afar, the sculptures appear like a series of crosses hanging in the air.
  • This is a memorial to the war dead of New Zealand both World Wars WW1 and WWII The official name is "Southern Stand" and erected in 2006. Designed by architect John Hardwick-Smith & sculptor Paul Dibble, who are both from New Zealand. There are 16 bronzes in all and each one has either some text or symbols or something relevant to this memorial. There were some derogatory comments about the design of this memorial. I really think it has lovely shape and form and has an artistic "form" which changes whether it be sunny, cloudy or whatever the weather. Sometimes to be over critical of such a subject when there is such meaning and depth behind the memorial of people who lost their lives in warfare and this has been put there as a constant reminder to us all to remember "the fallen" Go there admire it and please remember all the young lives, cut so short which this memorial represents.
  • lovely to see this
  • The idea of the flying crosses is great.
  • Nice to have a memorial to something so specific.

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.
