International Bomber Command Centre

At the heart of the Centre are the Memorial Spire and Walls of Names. The centre includes recording, preserving and relating the stories of all those involved with, or impacted by, Bomber Command during the Second World War. Lincoln was chosen for the site as it provides a central point for all 27 bases that earned Lincolnshire the title of ‘Bomber County’.

By Rail: Lincoln / 1 mile

Lincoln’s Cathedral provided a landmark for crews both leaving and returning from missions and, for those who failed to return, the Cathedral was often their last image of home. The county housed over a third of all the WW2 Bomber Command Stations, making it the ideal home for this commemoration of the bravery of the men of Bomber Command.

The Spire is now recognised as the UK’s tallest war memorial.
