Avast me hearties! Your little landlubbers can be pirates for the day on Captain Hook's huge wooden pirate ship at the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground.
Everyone loves this imaginative play area. Nestled between the trees in Kensington Gardens, it's inspired by J M Barrie's novel, Peter Pan.
Designed to be accessible and inspiring, kids love playing in the teepees, on the beach, and running between the sculptures.

Also, the friendly front-gate guard watching for parentless...more
In the middle of Hyde Park is this not-so-hidden gem that memorializes Diana, the late Princess of Wales. Perfect on a warm sunny day (as it was when I visited), the fountain and play areas are a delight for the kiddies who need to work off some of that energy, running and playing and splashing.
Because I am sans children in the UK, I was not permitted to actually enter the park and had to...more
