I think this might be one of my all time favorite fountains. It's located in a place called Horselydown Square on the south bank of the Thames near Tower Bridge. The last time I was in London, I stayed with two friends very near here. They were both coffee drinkers and just on the street side of this square is a Starbuck's that was a daily morning stop. While they were in Starbucks paying for those pricey lattes, I roamed around this square and found this wonderful fountain. It was created by Antony Donaldson in 1991. Besides the bathing nymphs, you can see their belongings sitting at the edge of the fountain all neatly sculpted to make it appear they made a spontaneous decision to jump in the fountain and enjoy the water.
The next time I go to London, this is one place I will visit again and take more photos.
