If the weather stays warm, I imagine quite a few people are going to enjoy playing in this fountain at the Southbank. The idea is to go into the middle while it is turned off and enjoy the sensation of being dry yet surrounded by walls of water. From the number of very wet children I saw on Sunday afternoon, some evidently think that tame sport.
Others, mainly younger, were enjoying this year’s beach. It even smelt like the seaside. How do they manage that? The ice cream van added aunthenticity too.
