My daughter and grand daughter arranged a wonderful trip to London to see The Poppies at the Tower for my 70th birthday. The main surprise however was that we stayed the night at the Shangri-La Hotel at the Shard. Can highly recommend this hotel for that very special occasion, nothing was too much trouble for the staff and the views of London were exceptional. Our room overlooked Tower Bridge and the grounds of the Tower itself. We had a birds eye view of the Poppies and the people looking like ants, walking round the moat. I was prompted to write this review this morning when I heard on the news that the potter and designer of the Poppy Art Installation have been recognised in the New Year Honors.
