Remembering those who succumbed to the tragedies of WW1

Last Sunday we took the monkeys into London for the day as I was very keen to see the Poppies at the Tower of London. We made a day of it and showed the monkeys St Pauls Cathedral, then walked across the Thames via the Millenium Bridge. At first they weren't keen as we'd told them it was wobbly! Whoops! 

With much stopping and photo taking, we walked our way along the Southbank to Festival Hall, stopping for a coffee along the way. Our next stop Westminster. 
Past Downing Street then the Cenotaph we headed to the tube near Big Ben and made our way back down towards Tower Bridge.
Once at the Tower of London we met my parents and joined many hundreds of like minded people all paying their respects and viewing the hundreds and thousands of poppies in place. Each one placed there to mark every soldier and service personal who lost their lives in World War One. Once installation has finished there will 888,246 ceramic poppies around the parimeter of the Tower of London. A sight never to behold again and in my opinion a must see. 


After visiting there and taking many photo's we headed for dinner with the Granparents and then it was sadly time to part. 
We had a great day and start to half term. If you get the chance to go you must!
