Poppy Installation At The Tower Of London


If you're in London any time between now and November 11th I'd highly recommend taking a trip over to Tower Hill to visit the gorgeous poppy installation at the Tower Of London. 'Blood Swept Lands and Seas Of Red' was created by artist Paul Cummins and stage designer Tom Piper to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the first world war. Over eight hundred thousand ceramic poppies will eventually fill the Tower's moat, each of which is currently being put in place by hundreds of volunteers who were hurriedly working away when we visited last weekend.

I'll definitely be making a trip back once it's finished when you wont be able to see any green at all! It really is an incredible sight, it looks so much more impressive in person and these pictures don't really do it justice.
