No matter what the weather is like, children love nothing more than playing outside.
Playgrounds and parks can provide hours of entertainment for little ones, who will be kept occupied by swings, slides and any other apparatus that the playground may have on offer.
The temperature may have dropped, but that doesn’t mean that you should retreat to the indoors for the entirety of your weekend away.
If you’re taking the family away to London there are plenty of children’s playgrounds where little ones will run around for hours, giving you some much needed relaxation time.
Grab a coffee as you head to your destination and when you arrive find a suitable bench, sit back and relax. You could read or just watch the world go by, either way your kids will be entertained and won’t be pestering you for anything.
Once they’ve tired themselves out on the monkey bars, stroll back to your room at the Piccadilly London West End where a comfy bed and hot bath will be waiting for you.
Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground
Broad Walk, London W2 4RU
Princess Diana was a national treasure and also loved children, so it’s completely fitting that this playground has been designed in her memory. This playground is pretty special and has a number of features that all children will love, including a giant ship that they can clamber onto. The entire area is inspired by the classic fairy-tale Peter Pan, so here you will also find a sensory trail, teepees, a beach that surround the ship and a number of different toys and sculptures. In a gorgeous setting around lush trees and greenery, this is an ideal place for children to play and adults to relax.
You’ve been out in the cold all day, so it’s time to relax. Head back to your room at one of our boutique Hotels in London, either by foot or public transport and relax in peace and style.
