Diana, Princess of Wales’ Memorial Playground

family travel London

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.

Small Folk Travel

Small Folk Travel is a family travel site by mama and travel writer Taraneh Jerven. The Jerven family (two toddlers, one bun in the oven) travels incessantly. When researching our trips, we couldn't find the family travel coverage we were looking for. We did our own research. We wrote the family travel guides ourselves. Taraneh Jerven writes for international travel publishers including RoughGuides.com and DK Eyewitness Travel. We cover good stuff for discerning parents and their little ones. Often these overlap. If they don't, we take turns.
