Bit disappointed. Just a dribble of water running down a very shiny structure. Bit of a puddle on the floor.

This water feature is seen in the TV series Torchwood except that the door to the lift is not there but great to see

In a nice area, always something going on, we always pass this when in the area as my kids think it's great. A great piece of architecture.

Fits in well with its surroundings. Simple but effective design. Very calming to look at. Ideal location.

One cannot miss this as one passes the Millenium Centre, or Opera House as it's known. Amazing piece of architecture.

In the dark this is spectacular reflecting passing car lights and other lights constantly changing in the surrounding darkness.
