A visit to Princess Diana Memorial Fountains, London

.

•*¨*•✩✬ I visited the Princess Diana Memorial Fountains early in May. It’s a beautiful place to go surrounded by lots of water. The attraction is situated in Hyde Park – London.

It’s a beautiful attraction to visit on a warm, sunny day. Surrounded by nicely cut grass and trees… all you hear in the background, is the continual sound of gushing water, as it swirls and twists in different directions. You can sit by the water feature and place your feet in it. The water level is low and safe, so kids are able to walk in the fountain and have fun. I took a few photos with my mobile phone. All below.

It also has a Memorial Walk, which is 7 miles long and takes people through 4 of the most beautiful parks in the world - St James Park / Green Park / Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens and famous buildings associated with Princess Diana during her life time.

Also nearby you can sit and relax infront of a lake, or be brave and hire a little boat. If you still have some energy left, then you can visit the Serpentine Gallery which is just a 10 minute walk from the Memorial fountains.
