Ceramic Poppy Display at the Tower of London

Entitled ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ sees the Tower of London’s famous dry moat filled with 888,246 ceramic poppies to create a powerful visual commemoration for the First World War Centenary.

The poppies have all been sold, and are priced at £25 each. All net proceeds plus 10 per cent are to be shared between six service charities, including the Royal British Legion and Help for Heroes.
