Public notice: In line with other precautions taken across the park the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain has been switched off and closed to the public. It will return to operation once it is deemed safe and the rules about social distancing are revoked. Please ensure you check our updates page for the very latest information about park closures and access to facilities.


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.
