.’. Somerset House Fountains .’.

The Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court is at the heart of Somerset House – a dignified courtyard with a mischievous streak.

The array of jets dance in an orchestrated sequence, with added coloured lighting at night – a refreshing surprise on a warm summer day.

The fountains are normally switched on for spring and summer months, except when events take place in the courtyard which require them to be off; during Xmas time the space is taken by an amazing Ice Ring.

To be honest nothing really matters, if you are near Somerset House during the Summer do this: Take your shoes off and run around the fountains…you will never be the same. Run like when you were a kid and nothing matter, run like crazy, run and get wet and laugh loud.
