We decided after a few busy sightseeing days to start our 3rd day by taking the kids to the Princess Diana Memorial playground and just let them run. Very glad we took the time to visit! It's really easy to find, we took the central line from hotel to the Queensway station, and after crossing the road and entering the... More

To hear children playing while knowing this is a tribute to Princess Diana, is quite a sentimental feeling. No expense seems to have been spared as there is not only playground equipment but a small carrousel. Just lovely, especially as it's ensconced in the gorgeous Hyde Park.

A beautifully designed playground the values the importance of play and imagination. The pirate ship is the main attraction along with the water garden, sand areas, treasure troves and grassy areas to enjoy a picnic. All the facilities you need to enjoy an extended play: a cafe and clean toilets for children and adults. It is fenced all the way... More

On a weekend visit to London decided to take the kids to this park based on reviews on tripadvisor. Although the park is hidden away we found it easily enough. However even though we had chosen to go on a weekday morning during term time the park was extremely busy and this put my kids off a little as they... More

Such a lovely place to visit, the children really enjoy it there, have a picnic under a tree, beautiful surroundings. The venue needs to have benches, many people can't sit on the ground, the disabled and the elderly, so be aware that you may have to stand. Other than that it is well worth a visit.

Me and my wife where walking looking for it... bad marking to find the place. We saw it and we wondered if that was the right spot. No precise indication. I was using my cellphone and gps and it seemed we were by it. It´s a simple monument, I guess we expected something bigger and more noticeable. After arriving home... More

We briefly visited this playground but would have spent much longer there as it could keep children occupied for a while. The various musical instruments for children, including a type of "organ" that plays music by hitting hammers on steel pipes using piano like keys. My 18 month loved it. Another one consisted of 9 brass plates to stand on,... More
