Somerset House Fountains

Somerset House Fountains

Somerset House Fountains are normally switched on for the Spring and Summer months.


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.
