Battle of Britain Memorial

Battle of Britain Memorial

The Scramble ExhibitionA unique tribute to the men of the RAF who defeated the Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain in 1940. The clifftop memorial, replica Spitfire and Hurricane and Christopher Foxley-Norris Memorial Wall provide a calm place of reflection and pilgrimage.

The Wing, meanwhile, is a modern, interactive visitor centre that uses high-tech audio-visual displays and hands-on exhibits to tell the tale of the Battle of Britain and appeals to young and old alike. A well-stocked shop featuring signed memorabilia and a first-floor cafe with spectacular views across the Channel to France add to the appeal of this special place of remembrance
