Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain

Memorial in Kensington & Hyde Park

Dedicated to the late Princess of Wales, this memorial fountain was envisaged by the designer Kathryn Gustafson as a ‘moat without a castle’, draped ‘like a necklace’ around the southwestern edge of Hyde Park near the Serpentine Bridge. The circular double stream is composed of 545 pieces of Cornish granite, its waters drawn from a chalk aquifer more than 100m below ground.
