Poppy Roundels Have Arrived: Here Are The Stations Where You'll Find Them

As we approach 11 November and Armistice Day, a number of poppy roundels can be seen on platforms at tube and Overground stations across the network.

Poppy roundels first appeared in November 2018, and — proving popular with passengers — have since become a fixture of this time. They're not specially-made roundels as such; the poppy design is a vinyl that's stuck onto existing roundels.

As well as the roundels, you'll see TfL tubes, trains, trams and buses 'wearing' poppies over the next couple of weeks. And, from now until 13 November, some 2,000 personnel, veterans and volunteers are out at London's many stations, collecting donations for the Poppy Appeal, which raises money to support former service personnel and their families. (And yes, they'll accept contactless as well as cash.)

Millions of paper poppies are crafted by hand at a factory in Richmond, and they often have public open days, where you can make your own poppy.
