Visiting the International Bomber Command Memorial, Lincoln
29th November 2023
I recently visited the International Bomber Command Memorial at Lincoln (IBCC) and it is a fantastic memorial to those who served and gave their lives in Bomber Command.
The gardens, spire and plaques with the names who lost their lives are all free to visit. Car parking is charged for (£3) or you can walk up to the site from Lincoln in around 25-30 minutes.
I also attended an evening talk on Bomber Command and the Great Escape which was excellent.
I visited the exhibition which, for those interested in Bomber Command is worth going into, with recorded stories, films, photos and an interactive "raid" where you get to play at being crew members (presumably aimed at kids but I enjoyed it). They also conduct free tours around the gardens and site. There’s also a very good café on site.
All in all a great memorial and very moving to read all the names of those who lost their lives.
