This breath-taking work of art arrives at the Olympic Park on the 8th of November, for 10 days only. The 72,396 figures represent a British serviceman killed at the Somme who has no known grave, many of whose bodies were never recovered from the battlefields. The display will be truly extraordinary in its impact and recognition of those who made the ultimate sacrifice.


The whole country witnessed the huge success of the poppy instillation at the Tower of London during the summer of 2014, due to the interest generated on social media and in the national press. Shrouds of the Somme is expected to engage with the public in a similar way, by combining WW1 commemorations with one of London’s top visitor attractions.


You'll be able to get a birds-eye view of this incredible memorial with a trip up the ArcelorMittal Orbit, the UK's tallest sculpture. Here you'll also get amazing 360-degree view of London and the waterways, green spaces and iconic sporting arenas that make up Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Follow this with a delicious afternoon tea to finish your day.

  • Free time to view the Shrouds of the Somme in Queen Elizabeth Park

  • Entrance to the ArcelorMittal Orbit
