Crystal Palace Park

Asides from being a play to run around and play, Crystal Palace Park features the world’s oldest life-size dinosaur sculptures.

God’s Own Junkyard

Perhaps more suitable for older children, God’s Own Junkyard is a salvage-yard-meets-art-exhibition that features decades-worth of vibrant neon signs, many of which have been featured in films such as Captain America.

Where should families stay in London?

Families visiting London should definitely consider serviced apartments for their accommodation. Family apartments offer the ultimate in space and convenience, and come with cooking and washing facilities that can prove crucial, especially with very young children. Staying in family apartments also tends to work out cheaper than hotels, and means that your family needn’t be separated into different hotel rooms! Many of London’s family apartments are also conveniently close to some of the city’s top attractions.
