Tower of London Poppies

P1020383

As I’m sure you all know, this year marks the 100 year anniversary of the start of the First World War and in commemoration, 888,256 ceramic poppies are being placed in the moat of the Tower of London.  My Grandma was in London last weekend so we decided to head down to see them.  She was staying in the Strand Palace Hotel so we met there and then jumped on the number 15 bus which just so happened to be an old Routemaster (which we didn’t have to pay for as there’s nowhere to swipe an Oyster, result!)

If you want to see this gorgeous display, make sure you get down to the Tower before November because then the poppies will be removed and sold with the money going towards charities including The Royal British Legion, Combat Stress, Coming Home and Help for Heroes.
