We wanted somewhere fun for our little one in London to play and chill after a busy weekend visiting different sights. I came across this playground whilst browsing for place to visit linked to Peter Pan and the playground was suggested as it had a Captain Hook looking ship. This park is amazing and provided hours of fun for my... More

This is a really magical playground for children up to 12 years old. It is very safe, and with a gated entry. There are themes from Peter Pan (pirate ship, treasure chest, teepees, a sensory trail,...). Plenty of benches for adults too to relax and watch the children having the time of their life. It must even be lovelier in... More

A massive playground with lots to entertain children of all ages. Loads of benches for the adults too. Gated entry and staff on the gate to count in and out. It was really busy when we visited in half term, but there was still plenty for the kids to do. We stayed for about an hour, but in warmer weather... More

The Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Playground is a relatively close 20 minute walk to the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum, and offers a great chance for parents traveling with children to take a break from museums and let themselves unwind a little bit and shout to their heart's content on one of the nicest playgrounds I have...

Took my 3 year old (almost 4) to London for the day to see some sights and our scheduled stop at this playground was definitely the highlight for her. It's a fantastic place with gated entrance (ensuring all children are accompanied). Plenty there to see and do - lots of opportunities for imaginative play! We went on a normal Saturday... More

Although now nearly 14 years old this excellent and novel playground is wearing well and entertained our grandchildren aged 11 and 8 for hours. The pirate ship and sound wall were favourites.

This place kept us entertained for a good hour - our little girl didn't know where to go first she was so excited. It is one of the best playgrounds I have seen for kids - really simple but spacious and diverse in what it has to offer. We had a beautiful winter day for this trip and so while... More

Take some time out from the rat race to follow the paths through London's beautiful parkland created as a memorial to this remarkable young lady, who touched the hearts of so many.

Just what my two little Peter Pan obsessives wanted. The pirate ship is fantastic. Lots of places to hide from boring grown-ups.

We were in London over Thanksgiving and decided to visit this playground during the afternoon. We walked up to the gate right at 345pm to find that they had just closed for the day. The park has no lights so is not open past mid-afternoon during the winter. It does get dark in London very early in the winter, but... More
