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.

Came here to see the dinosaurs. Wasn't disappointed. As weird as I'd imagined. Was nice they were all round the same spot so to speak. My wee one enjoyed the petting zoo but for me it looked a little run down and grim. The walk...More

Big park, lots of walking. Dinosaurs all together round one end of a big lake. Will take grandson, an 'expert' in dinosaurs next time to see what he thinks of them. I'm sure they were fantastic when made in 1854 but not sure kids these...More
