Its just a beautiful place, the girls really loves it. its very secure and so you can let your kids go and experience it. the toilets are clean, and there are sitting areas in the playground and out side of it.

Beautifully kept memorial for Princess DIana. Nearby the Natural History Museum and very well secured. Great place to enjoy the outdoors after a few hours in the museum.

This playground is situated in Kensington Gardens (the other side of Hyde Park). Entrance is free, but they'll only let adults in if they're accompanied by children! There's a big wooden pirate boat there that kids can climb on, as well as all sorts of other playground equipment. There's even a section with some shallow water the kids can wade... More

Really great park. Security on the gate were very thorough and stopping people without children from coming in. Ice creams etc were very overpriced, but we expected this being a major tourist attraction in central London. You really need to have a parent per child in this playground if you have small children. There are a lot of things to... More

We have been here a couple of times and the kids love it. It ticks all the boxes, lots to do, opposite the the the station, great little cafe, toilets, park outside. Have to be honest, its a bit stressful for me as you can lose sight of your child very quickly so you have to watch them all of... More

This really is a great playground, it's very close to Kensington Palace and we walked for ages through the park before we found it. Check maps, someone had tinkered with the park signposts and we walked further than we needed to as a result. The pirate ship is talked about a lot but my favourite was the slide that is... More

We came here after a rather disappointing trip to the Natural History Museum to try and rescue the day. It is a lovely playground, with lots of things for children of all ages to do. As this was not a planned trip we only had a little over an hour there, but could have stayed a lot longer. We didn't... More

I would say the playground main attraction is the pirate ship. Many a kid, including my own, played on it for quite awhile. The playground has a nice water feature so you may want to bring a small dry towel for drying. Lots of little ones were running around with a set of "wet" clothes. There is a traditional kind...

What a lovely place for kids - a pirate ship on a small beach in a lovely little park area with a cafe. Not enough seats for parents but we were only planning on staying for half an hour or so, so it wasn't an issue for us.
