Crystal Palace dinosaurs

1/10 Crystal Palace Dinosaurs, Crystal Palace

Set in lush green gardens in south London, this park was once home to the famous Crystal Palace, a glass and iron exhibition centre of the Victorian era. Nowadays it is home to a herd of dinosaurs who lurk among the trees, bushes and ponds, waiting for children to discover them. These were the first models of extinct animals to ever be made and pre-dated Darwin’s The Origin of Species by six years; they are so precious that they have been awarded Grade I listed status. Children can learn more about the models by downloading an audio tour via AudioTrails online. Along with the sculptures in the park there is a large adventure playground, playing fields and cafe. Entrance to the park is free.
