• Support The Royal Parks

[from a public information point in St James’s Park] “Sustaining a happy home for wildfowl and providing a welcoming and memorable experience for millions of visitors each year requires constant care and considerable cost. The Royal Parks Foundation and its sister charity in the USA raise funds and awareness for London’s eight amazing Royal Parks. If you would like to make a donation or support a project – large or small – in your local Royal Park, please visit http://www.SupportTheRoyalParks.org [external link] Scan this QR code with your smartphone to find out more.”

• A fountain of life and lights

“In 1749, George II staged a huge firework and musical celebration here. Handel composed the music, which was performed with 40 trumpets, 20 French horns and 100 cannons! During the event, fireworks went off prematurely sending the guests running for cover.”

• “Now over 5.5 million annual visitors to St James’s Park can appreciate a safer, quieter, but nonetheless spectacular show, in the form of The Tiffany Fountain. The fountain can reach eight metres high, thanks to the powerful pump which recycles a bath-full of water every 24 seconds!”

• The light fantastic

“Adjustable LED lights in the base of the Tiffany Fountain create a magical night time display fit for a Queen – quite literally, as the fountain aligns perfectly with the balcony of Buckingham Palace. – The spectacular Tiffany Fountain replaces an historic fountain first installed at Pelican Rock in 1966.”

• Help from across the pond!

“The Tiffany Fountain (opened in 2011) was made possible thanks to a generous donation from The Tiffany & Co. Foundation in New York. It is part of a wider programme, ‘Tiffany – Across the Water”, which focuses on restoring and renewing water features across London’s eight Royal Parks.”
