6 Beautiful Remembrance Day Poppie Displays To Admire In Yorkshire

Remembrance Day takes place on November 11, this year Remembrance Sunday falls on November 14. Cities, towns and villages across Yorkshire have been paying their respects to those that fight and have fought for our country with beautiful poppie displays. We’ve selected a few rather beautiful tributes that we thought deserved to be recognised for you to visit this remeberance day.

Millions of poppies are sold every year by the Royal British Legion to raise money for veterans and the families in the build to to Armistice Day. Memorial services will be held across the country on Remembrance Sunday and many will be paying their respects across the country today with a two-minute silence.

What time is the moment of silence, and when did the tradition start?

A two minute silence is held every year at 11am on 11th November. The date marks the exact moment that the armistice was signed between the Allies and Germany in 1918 at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month to mark the end of the First World War.


A display at Horsforth roundabout in Leeds has been decorated with Murphy’s Army Purple Poppies in honour of all the animals lost in service during the war and to those who serve today. The beautiful display is a fitting tribute today for the sacrifice of those animals who help defend out country.


In the market sqaure in Thirsk, North Yorkshire, you will find a clock tower decorated with knitted poppies created by Thirsk Yarnbombers. It’s a startling piece and a awe-inspiring tribute to those who fought for us.


Found at Knaresborough castle this stunning display is an incredible tribute to those who fight for their conutry. A huge well done to those who put this together.


This beautiful waterfall of poppies with twinkling lights is an amazing installation. The beautiful arch is a reallu impressive tribute to the soliders that gave their lives.


You’ll find an amazing display in the market town of Richmond, who have created a wall draped poppie tribute for remembrance day. Absolutely stunning and well worth a visit.


A subtle but poignant display in the cathedral city of Ripon. The red poppies are a stark contrast to the huge cathedral creating a brilliant moment for reflection onthis important day.
