When London laughs

A cute little kid enjoying herself in the beautiful water sculpture at the Diana Memorial in Hyde Park in London.

The memorial itself is pretty impressive, and unlike most other memorials. This one here serves a purpose, beyond just posing for tourist cameras. This one here is building to provide enjoyment and amusement to children and adults alike, where one can find solace on a gloomy day or after a hard day's work.

More about the Diana Memorial Fountain

This unique Memorial to Diana, Princess of Wales was opened by Her Majesty The Queen on 6th July 2004.

The fountain was built with the best materials, talent and technology. It contains 545 pieces of Cornish granite - each shaped by the latest computer-controlled machinery and pieced together using traditional skills.

The design aims to reflect Diana's life, water flows from the highest point in two directions as it cascades, swirls and bubbles before meeting in a calm pool at the bottom. The water is constantly being refreshed and is drawn from London's water table.

The Memorial also symbolises Diana's quality and openness. There are three bridges where you can cross the water and go right to the heart of the fountain. We hope visitors will feel at home when they visit this special place.
