The National Memorial to the Few, dedicated to the heroic and selfless deeds of the men who won the Battle of Britain, 10 July to 31 October 1940.
The Battle of Britain Memorial is a 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 central statue, carved by Harry Gray, depicts an airman seated on a propeller boss surrounded by the badges of all the Allied squadrons and other units that took part in the Battle.
Close by are full-size replicas of a Hawker Hurricane Mk I and Supermarine Spitfire Mk I.
Named in tribute to the late Air Chief Marshal Sir Christopher Foxley-Norris, a Hurricane fighter pilot in 1940, the wall contains the names of all those aircrew known to have flown at least one sortie with an accredited squadron or unit of the Royal Air Force during the Battle of Britain.
A modern, interactive visitor centre and home to The Scramble Experience. High-tech audio-visual displays and hands-on exhibits tell the tale of the Battle of Britain and what life was like for the pilots who defended Britain's skies in the summer of 1940. It is appealing to younger and older visitors to this very special place.
A first floor ‘cockpit’ area with an open balcony offers superb views across the Channel to France, and is home to the Cockpit Cafe, and a well-stocked shop featuring signed memorabilia and a range of souvenirs.
