Seaham Hall’s “Charybdis” vortex fountain looks amazing

Located in Seaham Hall, in Sunderland, United Kingdom, the vortex fountain works by pumping water in a circular motion up a large acrylic cylinder, and forces water to cascade down its sides. This has the effect of creating a vortex in the middle of the fountain, and since the cylinder is completely transparent, the water appears to stand still, like a solid block of water.
