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.

Because I am sans children in the UK, I was not permitted to actually enter the park and had to...more
This is the most incredible playground I have ever visited, somewhere with something for children of all ages and plenty of stimuli to get imaginations running wild.
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.

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