Visit the Bali Bombing Memorial

One of London's lesser-known memorials is dedicated to the 202 victims - 28 of whom were British - of the Bali Bombings in 2002.


Unveiled by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall in October 2006, the memorial consists of a marble globe with 202 carved doves, and sits at the bottom of the steps between HM Treasury and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in Westminster, watched over by a statue of Clive of India.

  1. This was the most tragic act of terrorism in our part of the world, yet it seems to be remembered only with flowers and speeches each year. It is appropriate that a more permanent memorial was built, especially next to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in Westminster.

  2. The 7/7 memorial over in Hyde Park is a pretty sobering sight too. Thanks for the reminder
