A lovely relaxing park outside the centre providing a most welcome reprieve from the tourist hords. There are fabulous dinosaur statues from Victorian era and remains of Crystal Palace that hint at its monumental size. You can spend hours there wandering the park’s numerous paths.

The park is a stone's throw from the station, so really easy to get to. It's one of the best green spaces in London. Great place for a long walk (& I mean LONG, it's a big park), or to just chill out. Definitely check...More

Our main reason for visiting Crystal Palace was to do the Dinosaur walk. Really enjoyed it. Good for families and couples We also had a pleasant walk around the park. The rail station is right next to the park so it is easy to access.

The Crystal Palace was a very impressive building but it burned in 1936. It remains little of it, but, with patience, you can find a few interesting ruins like those of the High Line subway station. Then of course you have the concrete dinosaurs with...More

Crystal Palace Park stretches downhill from the site of the Palace itself (now just a brick platform and its grand steps, with some statues punctuating them - most of which have seen better days). If you get the chance go and see the impressive subway...More
