What Is It? Located next to Kensington Palace and Kensington Gardens, 350-acre Hyde Park is one of the world’s greatest city parks.
Why Do It? There’s lots to keep kids entertained, including opportunities for swimming, boating, or just burning off energy by running around. The Princess Diana Memorial Playground is the closest thing to Neverland you’ll find in the city, with a Peter Pan-themed playground that includes a pirate ship. There’s also a cafe serving organic ice cream next to it.
Good to Know: Other notable features include a large lake, meadow, over 4,000 trees, and ornamental flower gardens. There are several interesting buildings and monuments, such as the famous Achilles statue, the Joy of Life fountain, The Serpentine Bridge, and the Diana Memorial Fountain too.
