Our main reason for visiting Crystal Palace was to do the Dinosaur walk. Really enjoyed it. Good for families and couples We also had a pleasant walk around the park. The rail station is right next to the park so it is easy to access.

The Crystal Palace was a very impressive building but it burned in 1936. It remains little of it, but, with patience, you can find a few interesting ruins like those of the High Line subway station. Then of course you have the concrete dinosaurs with...More

Crystal Palace Park stretches downhill from the site of the Palace itself (now just a brick platform and its grand steps, with some statues punctuating them - most of which have seen better days). If you get the chance go and see the impressive subway...More

A big park and good for walking the dog, the cafe has been knocked down but is being rebuilt. Better in the summer as the ground can get boggy, there is a dinosaur park and a small zoo, but dogs not allowed in here. Good...More

Came here to see the dinosaurs. Wasn't disappointed. As weird as I'd imagined. Was nice they were all round the same spot so to speak. My wee one enjoyed the petting zoo but for me it looked a little run down and grim. The walk...More

Big park, lots of walking. Dinosaurs all together round one end of a big lake. Will take grandson, an 'expert' in dinosaurs next time to see what he thinks of them. I'm sure they were fantastic when made in 1854 but not sure kids these...More

These huge sculptures are very old and currently undergoing some restoration. Interesting to see but can only be seen from a cross the lake. Very large park - not sure it is worth a special visit though
