The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain will be reopened to the public on Thursday 1st July.
In order to simplify movement and maintain social distancing the main entrance has been moved south to the Rotten Row pathway, with exit through the north gate (see map for details). Please note: the west gate is for emergency and accessible entry only.
The Fountain area will have a maximum capacity of 500 visitors with queue management in place on busy days.
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.
