Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground is a large and exciting semi-wild space for children to explore and to play independently, right in the heart of the busy and often not very child-friendly capital of the UK. Children love the experience of 'sailing' on a large ship, explore 'secret' spaces (e.g. for story telling) and making sounds using interactive tubes... More

Love this fantastic magical playground. Our son spent hours exploring all the different areas and equipment. The pirate ship is fantastic and so big. The sandpit surrounding it will be great to play in during the summer with a bucket and spade. So much to see and do here we will definitely return with a picnic and our bucket and... More

This park is wonderful for children, it has a guard ensuring that the park does not get over subscribed and unsafe. It is gated and fenced in, I do not suggest that you leave your children unattended not at all but at least they wont run out whilst you are preparing a picnic. It has plenty to do, masses of...

Our little nugget loves loves ships, and of course pirate ships. During our trip to Europe we stopped at a playground each day to expend that little boy energy. The Princess Diana Memorial Playground in Kensington Garden is a perfect stop for those with young children. However, if you have an aversion to sand don't go or be prepared the... More

This playground was built in commemoration of Princess Diana, on June 2000 and situated in the northeast corner of Kensington Park. This is one of the best playground in London and Peter Pan themed. At the centre of the park there is a huge wooden pirate ship surrounded by a large beach and you can bring bucket and spade for your... More

Completely free in a perfect location, the kids found the various play areas fun to explore whilst we caught our breath after a busy day. Great to ha e the kids mixing with local children as well as overseas... More

This is a great park to take the kids. There are plenty of activities and places for them to play. It is gated and only adults with children are allowed to enter.

Fun activity for young children. Ideal way to burn off some energy when they've been doing the touristy things! Fantastic pirate ship for climbing and plenty of places to explore. Set in beautiful park with coffee bar on hand.

Visited the playground with our 3 year old grandson. There was so much for him to see and do even though it was a chilly day. The centrepiece is the large pirate ship but there are plenty of other experiences. Adults cannot enter this attraction unless they are accompanied by a child.
