Storybook Gardens, London

3.5
Take your children to an enchanting park corner and enter a world of stories at Storybook Gardens. Leap across the Frog King's lilypad, climb through the Old Woman's shoe, and catch a story at the village stage. Built in 1958 with some of the original features still open, the garden has plenty of activities to keep the family entertained. You'll find food and drink served at several concessions across the gardens. Note that bottled water is not sold but visitors are encouraged to bring their own containers to fill up at the fountains. Our London day trip planning website makes visiting Storybook Gardens and other London attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Beautiful skate trail, very well kept. I bought my wife, two older kids and their friends and we all had a blast!. Would have stayed longer if it weren't for the cold. There's great staff presence, an...  more »
  • Although we didn't find their animals anymore some other improvements were done in that place. Kids 2-10 will have fun there.  more »
  • We have been to Storybook many times in the summer but it was so special to go skating there in the winter. The trails with the lights and the little buildings all make it so special.  more »

  • So much fun! I went with my one year old, he's just walking and he loved running through the miniature village. It was a weekday in the beginning of October when we went and we were one of three families there, so it was like we had the place to ourselves. However, many of the attractions were closed so I don't think I would come at this time of the year again. Will definitely be returning!
  • This was an absolutely fantastic day for little kids. My 4-year-old and 2-year-old had a wonderful time. They have a miniature village, pedal carts with a track, a big bouncy pillow, a huge slide and multiple play structures, as well as a fantastic splash pad and sand play area. They also have amusement-style rides (a bit expensive) and regular amusement park style food (also on the expensive side). The park does allow outside food to come in. There are lots of areas to sit in shade and chairs around the splash pad. But what was really great were the staff. The employees are all young adults, but are very friendly and engaging with the children. I was super impressed by the way they talked to and entertained my children, and kept them safe when older, more aggressive children were around. Although some of the structures are a little on the old side, the staff's friendly demeanor is more than enough to keep us coming back.
  • This place is so cute. Our 4 year old had a great time and couldn't stop talking about it for a week now. Will definitely visit again soon! I recommend bringing your own food because the selection there isn't very big although very reasonably priced. Probably best for kids under 7 though.
  • So much fun great for kids. We bought a package deal and a few tickets for the adults. Food is reasonable. Free parking. Water park a bit slippery needs better cleaning or traction pads. We really enjoyed our visit very walkable. Recommend
  • Loved the big blue bouncy balloon thing and the fact that adults can jump with the kids. I didn't liked that the staff allowed patents holding their babies on it. I was a little concerned about their necks. Awesome splash pad. Overall, great day and super friendly staff

Where to stay in London

To make the most of sightseeing in London, it's best to stay in the center, as close as possible to the confluence of the city's two rivers. You'll be just a stone's throw from the city's best parks, as well as good entertainment. If you're just passing through and looking for budget accommodations while in transit, look east along Dundas Street--as you approach the airport, you'll find a host of affordable roadside motels. For a more suburban feel--and proximity to the city's biggest mall--head south to White Oaks, where you'll find a cluster of accommodations.
