The Battle of Britain Memorial
The National Memorial to the Few is a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made by ‘the Few’, the fewer-than 3,000 RAF airmen who fought to defend this country from a Nazi invasion in the Battle of Britain in 1940.
Situated on the famous White Cliffs of Dover and offering superb views across The Channel, the site has become a place of pilgrimage for thousands of people who visit to enjoy its tranquillity and reflect on its message of bravery and sacrifice.
The central memorial of a seated airman gazing out to sea is complemented by the Christopher Foxley-Norris Memorial Wall, which lists the names of all those who Churchill first described as ‘the Few’ in one of his most famous speeches of the Second World War. Those words: “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so Few” are inscribed on the Beaverbrook Wall at the site.
Other attractions include full-size replicas of a Spitfire and Hurricane, together with a café and gift shop. Work is also due to begin in 2013 on a major new visitor experience and learning centre at the site, to be called “The Wing”.
