Seaham Hall Hotel & 'Charybdis'

  • Description

    "I had walked on a footpath at the rear of the Hall last October [[1529768]] and from my research knew that this water feature was at the front. Nothing prepared me for how amazing it actually is. It is huge, has impressive energy and incredible beauty. The vortex dynamically swirls from the bottom of the container, and the whole surface rotates in a colossal whirlpool. You can climb up and look down inside. It's hard to resist the urge to drop something in to see where it would go but this is a select establishment and they might have CCTV. It would also upset the filtration system needed to keep the water clean. A static photo cannot do this thing justice and certainly gives no sense of the huge sound and energy that accompanies your visit. One of the many wonder of County Durham."
