2 Days Away

The already phenomenal Imperial War Museum in Manchester is set to host one of 2014’s most striking sculptures as it tours around the UK in 2018. The wave of poppies, commemorating those lost in The First World War, were initially placed in the grounds in and around the Tower of London and are as iconic as they are moving. Taking up residence in the museum, there will be exhibits and displays documenting life during the war, both in the trenches and in homes across the world. Displayed a hundred years since the end of the First World War, this sculpture serves as an important reminder for years to come. The following day we take a visit to the historic city of Chester. Famous for its Roman origins, it’s been a popular destination ever since and no less so in the modern age with its mix of attractions and things to do.
