Poppies at the Tower

Poppies at The Tower was such a moving experience and a truly stunning installation  named ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ which was created at the Tower of London in November 2014, 100 years after the start of World War 1.

Having bought one of the ceramic poppies I just loved seeing them all in the moat at the Tower of London. Each poppie has been created by Paul Cummins and the stage setting by stage designer Tom Piper – with a total of 888,246 ceramic poppies filling the moat representing each British military fatality during the war.

A must see if you are in London – Tower of London 5th August – 11th November 2014 in Remembrance of the First World War.
