Fountain fit for a Bear

Fountain fit for a Bear

Two Bears, one fountain, and water that might not taste great

Location: Hyde Park

Description: Just before you leave Hyde Park you will see a drinking fountain with two bears hugging each other...

The fountain was erected to celebrate 80 years anniversary by the 'Metropolitan Drinking Fountain and Cattle Trough Association.

Water still comes out but I wouldnt advise anyone to drink it...

The Shady Old Lady points out that you can drag this map using mouse. Or visit our full massive map.

The water from the fountain is perfectly safe to drink, just like any other tap in London! (robbie)
