Diana Memorial Playground is a gem hidden in Kensington Garden 10 min away from the Hide Park, one of the best London playgrounds. Enormous pirate vessel, wigwams, a beach with palms and treasure chests call to action everyone around aged 0 to 100y.o. There's also a lovely cafe and a pond with swans, seagulls and geese. If you love gardens and not willing to grow up like our friend Peter Pan, Diana Memorial Playground is a thrilling place to visit. www.royalparks.org.uk/parks/kensington-gardens
