High on Kent’s famous white cliffs stands a unique tribute to the men who took part in the Battle of Britain, one of the most famous victories won by this country in the whole of the 20th century.
At the heart of the Memorial site stands the National Memorial to the Few, an enigmatic sculpture of a pilot gazing out across the Channel towards France, from where scores of enemy aircraft could regularly be seen heading towards these shores in the summer and early autumn of 1940.
The evocative clifftop setting of the Memorial, the Christopher Foxley-Norris Memorial Wall and a replica Hurricane and Spitfire is complemented by The Scramble Experience, a high-tech, audio-visual introduction to the Battle, 80 years ago this year, that kept this country free from invasion.
The Scramble Experience is housed in The Wing, a modern visitor centre built in the shape of a Spitfire Wing that also offers a shop, education centre and a first floor café with unbeatable views of the French coast when the weather is kind.
The Battle of Britain Memorial offers a unique contribution of excitement, learning and remembrance and is ideal for groups of all kinds and all ages. The Scramble Experience features hands-on attractions for youngsters as well as a wealth of contemporary film footage, audio clips and written information, all available through modern touch screen technology.
