Hyde Park, Sandringham Gardens, fountain

This decorative fountain is in the middle of Sandringham Gardens, which are located on the eastern side of Hyde Park, on the corner of Park Street and College Street. Sandringham Gardens were developed to commemorate the intended visit in 1952 of King George VI, which was cancelled due to the sudden death of the King. The gardens were then created as a memorial to King George VI and King George V.


  1. For a minute I thought that was my photo. I've taken several almost identical ones.

  2. Must be a popular spot/angle for a photo.

  3. I did not realise that is what that little nook is called. Cloyingly English weren't we?

  4. Hi Jim, I find your blog of great interest. Was in Sydney in 2007 and 2008, so some of your images are familiar. Thanks for sharing.


Thanks for visiting my blog. Please leave me a message. Jim.
