London's Top Playgrounds

Every weekend we try to treat our boy to a fun day at a playground that is not close to our home. It's rewarding for everybody: the baby is so happy and exhausted afterwards & we have some time for ourselves. Luckily, London boasts amazing playgrounds, most of them with toilet facilities and much needed cafés (you need a fair amount of caffeine to run after your adventurous offspring). Here are our top three.

Diana Memorial Playground

Inspired by Peter Panthis playground captures kids' imagination. They become mighty pirates on a giant pirate ship, hide in Indian tepees, search for hidden treasures, drive tractors or sail in little boats, climb on raised wooden houses...

For the needed caffeine intake, there is a café which also serves salads, sandwiches and offers children's menus. An ideal destination on a sunny day!

Bishops Park Playground, Fulham

Set in the center of Bishops Park, the playground is divided in toddler, junior and teenage areas, so everyone is happy.

Nature, trees, and water (the park is on the banks of River Thames) play a central role. There is also a beach area with a big sandpit and fountains. It's the Baby's favourite because of the ducks!

Greenwich Park Playground, Greenwich

Having undergone a recent refurbishment with timber play equipment and set in one of the most beautiful Royal Parks, this playground is worth a visit.

It has a wide range of new and charming vintage play equipment for all ages. It also has toilet and baby changing facilities.
