The fountains are currently on daily from 10.00-23.00. 

The Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court is at the heart of Somerset House - a dignified courtyard with a mischievous streak.

The array of jets dance in an orchestrated sequence, with added coloured lighting at night - a refreshing surprise on a warm summer day.

The fountains are normally switched on for spring and summer months, except when events take place in the courtyard which require them to be off; these will be mentioned on this page. To confirm you can see the fountain displays on your visit please call 020 7845 4600 (Mon-Fri, 10.00-17.00) or email

Please note the fountains will be switched off from Thursday 31 July 2014 to Thursday 7 August 2014 inclusive whilst we prepare the courtyard for our Film4 Summer Screen.

From Friday 8 August to Wednesday 20 August 2014, the fountains will be on daily from 10.00-15.00.
