Hull’s Queen Victoria Square fountains – a place to dance and keep cool!22nd July 2019
Fast becoming Hull’s most popular attraction, Queen Victoria Square in Hull is a place where families flock to enjoy the dancing fountains which formed part of a £25m public realm facelift of the city centre completed in May 2017 by Hull City Council.
Re-live the opening of the fountains here.
The Queen Victoria Square fountains feature 77 separate jets of water capable of changing direction, speed and are choreographed to create a seamless flow from fountain to fountain thanks to computer programming.
The Fountain Workshop were responsible for the two major water features in the heart of Hull as part of the full redevelopment of Hull’s city centre. Championed by Fountain Workshop’s very own Fine Artist, Mel Chantrey, the dancing jets in Queen Victoria Square and the calming mirror pools in Trinity Square have added a splash of life to anyone wishing to explore everything that Hull has to offer.
