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.

This is probably the best playground I've ever come across. Grass areas, sand areas, mulch areas, water areas--it has it all. Heck, there's a ship here for kids to play on. There are no kids allowed without an adult, and no adults allowed without kiddos. Opens at 10 am.more

Also, the friendly front-gate guard watching for parentless...more

I think Diana would have been pleased to have this area named after her. Located in the middle of Hyde Park, this is a haven for parents to let their kids blow off some steam.

The most striking thing is the ginormous sandpit upon which sits a massive pirate ship with climbable crow's nest and portholes. Scattered around it are smaller pirate ships that swing, rock or are just for a couple of kids to...more

I love how it has a door man to keep riff-raft out. They have a no- kid, no- entry policy except for 1/2 hour a day weekday mornings so don't just wander over just because you are on a Princess Diana Memorial Tour. I assume this is to keep paedophiles out but you know... remember to show the child attached to you on arrival or they will boot you out.

As the others have mentioned, this has a...more
