We took our almost three years old grandson to Kensington Gardens specfically to visit the play park. As we were aware beforehand, there was a queue to get in. For most of the time it moved quite quickly, so we were not too concerned. Unfortunately, he refused to stay in the queue (temper tantrum), so we didn't get to see... More

We absolutely loved this playground. It is a wonderland for kids! Very safe, too — fenced with gate guards. Best of all, it's FREE! It was nice to be able to take our child somewhere that was especially for kids after a busy day of sightseeing. We will definitely be back on any future trips to London.

My 5 yeard old son and I totally loved this place. It has several different areas for kids to play, it is fenced and has a gate that only the playground staff opens for you, it as a small food court, and very clean bathrooms. I would just tell you to bring extra clothes for your kids because around the... More

If you have children 3-10 I would make this a destination of your trip. Besides being free to the public, it is just an awesome playground with a pirate ship. My kids age 8 and 10 just ran all over the place for 90 minutes. They met other kids there and just ran wild. Given that most of London is... More

Went there with the girls a couple of times during the trip. Easter Weekend was full but still plenty of space for the kids. There are various playgrounds here and the ship and Indian village is great. The girls has so much fun , 3 and 5 yo.

Great playground with many different areas for children to play in so they can use their imaginations, run off excess energy, appeals to different age groups and you can take a picnic.

Went here after going to the museum, the day was beautiful with the sun shining and loads of children out in the park. The water must have been freezing but the children and a few adults were still in it. A nice walk along the lake and an ice cream for the children. Great day.

Very clean and safe play area set in Kensington Park. Centrepiece is a large ship for kids to climb and explore, but there are many more small areas for kids to explore and have fun. Several wigwams provide a great opportunity for kids to use their imagination. Best to visit in warm weather so kids can enjoy playing in the... More
