Spraytastic!



This fountain in the grounds of St Thomas' Hospital is fascinating, I could probably sit watching it for hours. You are reminded of the Spirograph, too? OK.

Has to be one of the best fountains that I have ever seen! That is art!

With its office park look and location, it took me a while to realize that St Tom's was a hospital.

While I have great regard for Guys & St Thomas (my old catchment) and the NHS (consulted for them a few months), I'm astonished their Estates Division hasn't put these two complexes on the block. Developers paid almost £100M just to clear out tenants to build the Shard, imagine what they'd pay for this building - right on Southbank and opposite Parliament! (Guys is a great spot, too.) They'd be able to build a spectacular new facility on the other side of Waterloo Station and have an endowment to pay all the operating costs for 100 years.

But then we'd lose a lovely spot for an outdoor lunch.
