We arrived early and my son tried to run ahead but was stopped at the gates as I was not with him. Children cannot enter the park alone and neither can adults without a child. There is a café on site, clean loos and plenty of space to run around. We arrived there later in the day and found a... More

What a great playground! But be ready to queue up before be able to enter because of the popularity of the playground! Be early if I want to go there for less waiting time! But hey it is worth every second waiting!!! There are clean toilets! The cafeteria is a bit pricy but your own picnic food is welcomed and... More

We eventually found this playground, a bit of a walk for young kids if you go in the wrong end. We had a 9 year old with us, he found it a bit boring and not very exciting. But the younger children obviously loved it. There is a queuing system for this park, to avoid overcrowding, so it did feel... More

It took us AGES to find this play park. It is in Kensington Gardens, NOT Hyde Park. But it was so worth the miles of walking. It has to be one of the lovliest and FREE places we visited in London. It's very interactive and charming - our kids had a great time there. Highly recommended!!! (late afternoon might be... More

This playground is excellent, we were visiting London for the weekend. Our 2 girls aged 7 & 5 loved it, it's all fenced and access via a single gate. No adults without children allowed. You can access the cafe for refreshments, there are picnic tables and there are toilets just inside also. Big pirate ship with sand around, and a... More

If you are going to London with children under 10 this is a must! We visited on a particularly sunny day with two children under 5 and though we had to queue to enter (there are limited spaces) it was well worth it. Once inside you feel yourself transported to a magical land. Situated in the centre is a huge... More

Went to the playground with our little girl and there was a lot for her to see and play around with. It has a great theme to it and is very different to other playgrounds.

This is the best playground I've ever seen. The kids love it! Its fenced off, and a guard at the gate does not allow entry of any children without parents, or grown ups without children. Pirate ships, water, swings and much more.
