Your visit to Superbloom

A visit to the Tower of London this summer will be even more special as we celebrate the Platinum Jubilee year of Her Majesty The Queen.

To mark the occasion, over 20 million seeds have been sown in the moat developing over the course of the summer, to create a beautiful, new naturalistic landscape. Designed to attract pollinators, ‘Superbloom’ will bring a wonderful natural beauty to this urban space and introduce a new biodiverse habitat for wildlife. It will celebrate the value of nature for our wellbeing.

Superbloom is an evolving display. In June, we saw soft green and white hues, followed by a sea of delicate pink, blue, orange and white flowers in July. In August, visitors can expect to see lots of yellow Tickseed and the emergence of some pink and purple Cosmos. Throughout the month, more seed heads will be visible. We are leaving these in place to help us reseed the moat, ready for next year.

Accessing the Moat

You enter the moat via a fully accessible visitor entrance. Once in the moat, you can choose to climb the stairs and slide down into the moat on the four lane Superbloom slide! (please note, the slide will not be open in wet or very hot weather). Prepare to spend around 30 minutes exploring a one way route along winding willow-lined paths set to a specially commissioned soundscape with sculptural elements along the way. After your visit, relax and enjoy some food and drink along the Wharf

The Queen’s Garden

See the Queen's Garden, a special tribute to Her Majesty The Queen this Platinum Jubilee year. Designed to be viewed from above, this picture garden is inspired by her 1953 coronation gown. In the centre, sits a glass crown, a reminder of the Tower of London’s ancient as home of the Crown Jewels, which as a member you can visit for free.
