Diana Memorial Fountain

Hyde Park - W Carriage Drive, London, England

The basics

Known as the “People’s Princess” during her lifetime, thanks to her openness, charisma, and dedication to charity work, Princess Diana was a beloved member of the British Royal Family. Designed to be tranquil and easily accessible to the public, her memorial fountain flows gently on one side and more rapidly on the other; an allusion both to the positivity Princess Diana inspired, and the difficulties she faced. The fountain is included as a stop on the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Walk, a 7-mile (11-kilometer) circular trail in Central London that passes numerous sites associated with the Princess.

The Princess Diana Memorial Fountain is included on numerous sightseeing tours and royal-themed London itineraries, and it’s also easy to plan an independent visit.
