London: Royal Festival Hall, fountain
The Royal Festival Hall is a 2,900-seat concert, dance and talks venue within Southbank Centre in London. It is situated on the South Bank of the River Thames, not far from Hungerford Bridge. It is a Grade I listed building – the first post-war building to become so protected (in April 1988).
The foundation stone was laid in 1949 by Clement Attlee, then Prime Minister, on the site of the former Lion Brewery, built in 1837.
The Walking through the Appearing Rooms fountain installation, by Danish artist Jeppe Hein, was set outside the RFH during reopening celebrations after 2007 refurbishment
