Platinum Jubilee

Tower of London floral display to honour Queen's Platinum Jubilee

The display will blossom in stages throughout the summer but is a little behind schedule due to the weather.

A stunning display of colourful flowers is being prepared at the Tower of London to mark the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The 'Superbloom' – which will blossom in stages throughout the summer – will see millions of flowers fill and transform the moat around the tower.

The floral displays are a little behind schedule due to the weather, but more than 20 million seeds have been carefully sown to provide changing swathes of colour over the next four months.

The Queen's Garden at the Tower of London has also been designed to reflect the colours of Her Majesty's coronation gown –  complete with a glass crown.
