About Battle of Britain Memorial

The Battle of Britain Memorial is a tourist attraction in London, dedicated to those who laid down their lives in the Battle of Britain during the Second World War. It is a panelled granite sculpture which sits on the Victoria Embankment, overlooking the Thames River.

The centrepiece is a life-sized sculpture depicting airmen scrambling for the aircraft during the battle. The battle scene extends for a total of 25 metres or 82 feet in length and with the outer border consisting of plaques with the names of 2,936 pilots and aircrew who took part in the battle.

The sculpture was sculpted by Paul Day and cast by Morris Singer, the same foundry that cast the lions and fountain of Trafalgar Square.
