If you visit the Tower of London before 11th November you will see the “Blood Swept Land and Seas of Red” installation, marking the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. 888,246 ceramic poppies have progressively filled the Tower’s moat, the sight is stunning and the crowds are strangely hushed as an atmosphere of reflection falls over them.
Please do take the time to go and see it if you can. You won’t regret it.
