The International Bomber Command Centre, set to open December 2017


(IBCC) is being created to provide a world-class facility to serve as a point for recognition, remembrance and reconciliation for Bomber Command. At the heart of the International Bomber Command Centre are the Memorial Spire and Walls of Names.
The Spire commands stunning views across Lincoln, with a focus on the City’s ancient Cathedral, which served as a sighting point for crews flying from Lincolnshire. For many of the men named on the accompanying walls, the Cathedral provided their last sight of Britain.

It is now recognised as the UK’s tallest war memorial. The Spire was awarded the 2016 Structural Steel Design Award.
