Passengers boarding the Heathrow Express were greeted with a flower display including a cascade of purple and pink hydrangea, wisteria and fresh sea lavender on the walls of their carriage. 

More than 3,000 flowers in total were installed on the 43 seat, 23-metre long Heathrow Express carriage filling the air with the aroma of fresh spring blossom.

The mix of real and artificial flowers were attached to the ceiling and walls using suction grips and hooks and the plants in the luggage racks were held in place by foam.
