Book Now

In spring 2022, over 20 million seeds will be sown in the moat from carefully designed seed mixes. From June to September, the flower display will erupt into new colours and patterns creating a dramatic and engaging experience.

 

Designed to attract pollinators, ‘Superbloom’ will bring a spectacular natural beauty to the urban space and introduce a new biodiverse habitat for wildlife. It will celebrate the value of nature for our wellbeing.

 

Visitors can wander along a weaving path into the centre of the flowers. A specially commissioned sound installation and sculptural elements will draw visitors in and make you feel at home amongst the bees and butterflies. Take a moment to slow down and experience the nature that surrounds you.

 

Transforming the moat

The Tower’s ‘Superbloom’ is the first stage of a permanent transformation of the moat into a new natural landscape in the heart of the City of London.

It will see the moat – dug and filled with water in the 13th�century to defend the famous fortress – become a welcoming new habitat and a green haven for pollinators, insects and seed-eating birds.

In the 19th�century, the moat was drained and grassed-over and used as a grazing ground for Victorian livestock, and even as allotments during the Second World War.� In 1977, the moat was used to mark HM The Queen’s Silver Jubilee with a garden display.� The new moat landscape will take inspiration from this long history, bringing diversity of nature back to the Tower’s urban landscape and be the setting for the Tower’s Jubilee tribute.

The scheme has been designed by Historic Royal Palaces, working with landscape architects Grant Associates and University of Sheffield Professor of Planting Design, Nigel Dunnett – both of whom have extensive expertise in urban horticulture and landscape design. When the ‘Superbloom’ display ends in September 2022, the new natural landscape created to support it will remain in the moat as a permanent Jubilee legacy.

 

Following Superbloom you will have time to explore the Tower.
