- Parks and Playgrounds
Ages: all ages
Venue type: Outdoor
65 million years ago dinosaurs became extinct. There are many animatronic versions of these amazing beasts that are situated in parks and attractions around the UK, however Crystal Palace Park Dinosaurs can do better than that.
This unique attraction is home to 30 full-scale, three-dimensional model dinosaurs built by Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins in around 1854. It’s the first set of this kind that was ever attempted anywhere in the world and is now resident at Crystal Palace, giving guests a more historical and accurate depiction of this long forgotten time.
There’s a children’s play area and farm, where you can meet some real life furry friends and a fishing lake and maze to get lost in – for a short while at least!

Nice place for the kids to explore but children cannot touch the dinosaurs as they are fenced around a lake. There is also a nearby playground. My children loved it
