It was a sad day when the world lost their princess. The Diana Memorial Playground is a lovely tribute to a woman who cherished the innocence of childhood. Located next to her Kensington Palace home, the playground/Neverland is popular with good reason. The free play space includes a sensory trail (a.k.a. cool stuff to poke), tepees, and a pirate ship with a beach, set against a backdrop of tropical palms.
It’s a top spot for locals and tourists. There’s a queue to enter. Waiting times can range between 15 minutes up to one hour. You’ll also find an onsite cafe and baby changing tables in the public loo.
