  • Pay your respects, but be prepared to get emotional. What these guys did for us should never be forgotten.  more »
  • Outstanding tribute to these brave men who we owe so much to. A tranquil spot to sit in the Summer Sun and reflect.  more »
  • Nice memorial in the centre of woodhall spa. Large amount of names. Carpark right next to it, so not peaceful as you would expect.  more »

  • The focal point of Woodhall Spa. A bespoke memorial garden to commemorative the Dambusters. Woodhall is a beautiful place to visit. Don't miss a shirt walk to the Tea Room in the Woods and the Kinema in the Woods.... an original 1920's picture house where the organist rises from below to play for you before a film. Lots of one-off shops along the main street and a heated outdoor lido within walking distance too.
  • Brilliant little cafe. Full of aviation memorabilia. Tea served in posh teapots and coffee in proper cups just like being back in the forties. A certain return next time in Woodhall Spa.
  • Both the original and the new shard memorial are fitting and pleasing to the eye. The grounds are always well kept the memorial is situated in an excellent part of woodhall with shoos and cafes nearby. Also as someone mentioned on another review, the Petwood hotel (famous for 617 squadron) is just up the road. The flowers here are a picture in season.
  • The Dambusters Memorial is a fitting tribute to the men of 617 Squadron who shook Germany with the Barnes Wallis Bouncing Bomb during the Second World War. This Squadron was based at former RAF Woodhall Spa which was a satalite aerodrome for and current RAF Coningsby, which is now the home of the only flying Lancaster Bomber in Great Britain; there is also an airworthy Spitfire and Hurricane at RAF Coningsby as all three form part of the 'Battle of Britain Memorial Flight'. This county is rich in Aviation History. Some of these aircrews are gone, but not forgotton. My personal rating is 10/10 and my google rating is 5 stars. Ab-Initio Verimus-Caelum. I recommend a visit to Little Dorritts cafe (opposite) as it's an ideal place to reflect.
  • Wonderful day,feel like we are reliving the 1940's..Lots of people in vintage dress & the vehicles on show are amazing.Such a lovely experience for al ages as so much to do and see.
