This large, safe, outdoor play area is truly outstanding. The Diana Memorial Playground in Kensington Gardens, next to Kensington Palace, the former home of Diana Princess of Wales, is a fabulous children's playground for kids up to 12 years old. It's dominated by a giant pirate ship which children can climb all over, but there's also a sensory trail, areas for climbing and exploring as well as swings and slides. Staff is on site at all times, and no adults can enter without children (just as at Coram's Fields, another favorite London playground). If you stay for a while, there is a café and restrooms on site.
