Tower of London: Poppy Display

Much has, quite rightly, been written about the poppy artwork currently on display at the Tower of London. On my most recent trip to the capital (back in August), I made a detour to ensure that I could see them for myself, and it felt fitting that I should wait to post about it until today.

With each poppy representing a British or Commonwealth soldier who died during the First World War, it really is a beautiful tribute to their sacrifice.

When I visited they had barely scratched the surface at representing all those who had died. It is a very poignant and well-thought out tribute.
