I'm sure Diana Princess of Wales would have loved how this has turned out. Lots of sand and water pipes for kids to run around in. There's benches and picnic tables for parents and grandparents to sit and watch and all in a safe, enclosed...More

Kids 3, 5, 7 and 9 loved it. The 14 year-old, not as much, but that was expected. One of the best parts was the smaller teeter-totter ship that rocked way back and forth and knocked kids off. Also loved all the hidden nooks and...More

This is a very well kept and tidy park close to Kensington palace. We took our 20 month old son here for an hour while in London and he really enjoyed it. Plenty to do to keep him entertained and we will surely be back...More

Hype Park itself is a wonder. You walk off a busy London street, into the massive green space that is a solace for the city weary. The Diana Memorial Playground is a wonder, yet another shining example of what the City of London offers it's...More

Could not recommend this playground enough for locals and tourists alike. The central ship excites the imagination, but my little explorers love venturing to the perimeter as there is so much to find. Free to enter (with a child!) Toilets and refreshments on-site.

I went with a 7 year old and a 14 year old and they both enjoyed paddling in the fountain and playing football in the park. The pirate ship playground was more for the 7 year old though - no way the 14 year old was going... More

Yes I thought they were great. Slightly lower so they are easier to sit on for little ones, and there was space to change our daughter as well.
