Every year thousands of people from all over Britain head to Arundel Cathedral in Arundel, West Sussex to view the annual carpet of flowers that is created in the central isle of the Gothic styled cathedral.
The yearly tradition was started shortly after the cathedral was completed in 1873 by Henry, 15th Duke of Norfolk.
Originally all of the flowers needed to create the floral masterpiece were grown on the estate, the gardeners were also the ones who created the flower carpet. Now days a group of women from the parish have taken on the job of growing/sourcing the blooms and loads of volunteers come together to create the design.
This group has made only a few changes to the carpet tradition; The width was extended an extra 2ft making it 6 ft wide & the length was shortened from the original 98 ft to make it easier for visitors to walk around it easier.
If you’re in the UK you can visit the cathedral today to view the spectacular floral display, admission is free. For the rest of us, check out the slide show below.
