What toddler wouldn’t want to join the infectious splish splash dance of the 1080 illuminated fountains at Kings Cross London in Granary Square nor for that matter child, teenage, mother or grandmother?
All generations were in evidence frolicking or more sedately taking a dip in the pulsating fountains whose crescendo rhythm even beckoned to a local chihuahua X to run in and join the dance. Little A ran, zoomed, slipped and ran more, hooking up with one little boy who brought in his scooter the water dance was so good.
Of course there is very necessary chlorination but the bright deck chairs help you forgot and concentrate on the joy of fountain frolics. Long, short and soft drinks can be bought from the bars facing out onto Granary Square, a cheaper alternative is to just bring along some treats or a picnic.
Behind is Quentin Blake’s newly opened House of Illustration if you want to combine a visit and workshop with water wow.
Granary Square fountains are open from 07.40 am -23.30pm. Spare set of clothes essential, water reaches knee-high at points so parents beware if you decide to take a dip.
