Crystal Palace Park - Dinosaurs

Crystal Palace

The iconic dinosaurs were the Victorians' answer to Jurassic Park. Sculptor and fossil expert Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins and founder of the National History Museum Richard Owen erected the model dinosaurs when the park first opened. They were the first artistic representations of dinosaurs of their size and have been enjoyed by both younger and older generations for over a century. Don't forget to take your smart phone so that you can enjoy the free audio guide while exploring these majestic creatures.

    We had a really good afternoon here 'hunting' the dinosaur statues then digging for dinosaur fossils in the sand pit and riding rocking dinosaurs in the playground. Lots of parking too.
