The IBCC provides a world-class facility acknowledging the efforts, sacrifices and commitment of the million men and women, from 62 different nations, who came together in Bomber Command during WWII.
The centre also covers the stories of those who suffered as a result of the bombing campaigns and those whose survival was guaranteed by the humanitarian operations of Bomber Command.
The centre features the UK’s tallest War Memorial, the 31 Walls of Names which are unique in carrying the name of every life lost in the service of Bomber Command, two landscaped peace gardens over 9 acres, the Ribbon of Remembrance and a state-of-the-art visitor centre with immersive and interactive exhibitions over three galleries and two floors. The exhibitions are created using the first-hand testimonies of those who were there.
Facilities include the Hub Café, serving a range of food made using locally sourced ingredients. Full disabled access including lifts and free-to-use wheelchairs.
Access to the Memorial and Gardens are free and free guided tours are available throughout the day.
