The Battle of Britain Memorial

After a lockdown-defying year of improvements and upgrades, the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust is again welcoming visitors.

The site is now floodlit from dusk, adding another dimension to this dramatic clifftop tribute, which includes the National Memorial to the Few, the Christopher Foxley-Norris Memorial wall and a replica Spitfire and Hurricane.

New projectors have revitalised the interactive Scramble Experience, while The Wing and car park boast new entrance gates that once hung at RAF Biggin Hill.

A first-floor cafe with views of France and a well-stocked gift shop add to the appeal of a great day out.

Opening Times

Pedestrian access is available at all times via a side gate

Wing/Car park opening times – 1st October to end February, 10am to 4pm
