The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain is a memorial in London dedicated to Diana, Princess of Wales, who died in a car crash in 1997. It was designed to express Diana's spirit and love of children.
The fountain is located in the southwest corner of Hyde Park, just south of the Serpentine lake and east of the Serpentine Gallery. Its cornerstone was laid in September 2003 and it was officially opened on 6 July 2004 by Queen Elizabeth II. Also present were Diana's younger brother Charles Spencer, her ex-husband Prince Charles, and her sons William and Harry, her ex father in law Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and her two sisters Lady Jane Fellowes and Lady Sarah McCorquodale . The opening ceremony brought the Windsors and the Spencers together for the first time in 7 years.

  • I was interested in seeing this and am glad I walked to find it. A lovely tribute to the People's princess.  more »
  • After visiting Kensington Palace decided to find the Memorial Fountain, being a fan of the late Lady Diana. Following the directions for this was not easy and a long walk from the Palace itself...  more »

  • Great place for kids and adults alike. Coming here is always a pleasure on a hot day. Children running around everywhere and families with picnics. It's great to spend an hour or two here and cool down in the fountains which the children (and some adults) like to run in.
  • A very nice and fitting memorial. This is a short distance from two tube stations so is not far to walk. The memorial has a fence all around the outside and does not appear to have any opening /closing times as such. It may be well worth double checking with the park just to make sure. There were a lot of kids (and some adults) paddling in parts of the monument and the staff did not seem surprised so this is probably common and allowed practice, although it did seem odd.
