Visiting the Marie Curie ‘Garden of Light’ at St Paul’s Cathedral

Marie Curie Daffodils at St Pauls Cathedral

On the 1st March Marie Curie launched their garden of light, a beautiful tribute to the work of their nurses. The garden features 2,100 illuminated daffodils and each one represents a Marie Curie Nurse here in the UK. The project was inspired by the handmade poppy installation at the Tower of London in 2014. Although nowhere near as large scale it was still a moving experience.

On 8th March I took a trip up to Paternoster Square next to St Paul’s Cathedral with my family to admire this beautiful installation. It was a very humbling experience, especially reading the memory wall with messages for loved ones passed.

I will share with you my photos from the evening of both the cathedral as we passed by and the illuminated daffodil garden.

Where can you visit the daffodils?

Unfortunately the daffodil installation was only in London until 12th March and Edinburgh until today. But if you are near Belfast be sure to check them out at St Anne’s Square from 23-26th March!

Did you manage to visit the Marie Curie daffodil garden? What did you think?
