memorial for first and second world war

This memorial is a good place to remember the atrocities of world wars. It is not the most decorative of memorials in the world though.

The Memorial Gates are a war memorial located at Hyde Park Corner end of Constitution Hill. They commemorate the Armed Forces of the British Empire in the First and Second Word Wars. They also celebrate the contribution these men and women and their descendants make to the rich diversity of British society. A somber and touching memorial, it is worth... More

I'm sure there are milions of people that pass through here and don't even notice this is here, let alone a memorial. It's an important one and it's quite interesting. If you are walking by, it's worth taking a look at the countries commemorated upon it.

The memorial was inaugurated in 2002 commemorating the soldiers of the British Empire coming from five regions of the Indian sub-continent, Africa and Caribbean. This is a simple but important monument for almost five million volunteers who served in both World Wars.

These Memorial gates are located near Hyde park, they stand out as they are very modern looking and the queen inaugurated them in 2002. They commemorate the soldiers of the Commonwealth who died fighting for our country.

In a city that has more monuments than any other city that I have seen this one is just ok. It's not worth going out of your way for but if you are walking by as I was then it is worth checking out.

We had enjoyed a pleasant walk through Hyde Park and we were heading for Green Park. After passing Hyde Park Corner, we came upon the Memorial Gates at the start of Constitution Hill. The memorial is in the form of a gateway entrance to Constitution Hill. It commemorates the contribution of troops from Africa, the Indian sub-continent and the Caribbean... More

Visited on a very rainy day, unfortunately. In both wars, the soldiers came from the colonies, to fight side by side with the British. This monument commemorates the fallen heroes of the former colonies. Especially, if you have ties to Asia, you should visit this monument. By coming here you will show that their contribution is not forgotten. Lastly a... More

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
