Storybook Gardens, London

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 »
  • We took our kids here for skating a few days ago. It was perfect! $16.50 for a family of 6 is easily reasonable for the two hours we spent there. The ice path was a good length for small kids, big enough to enjoy the path and not so small that you felt like you were just going in circles like on an ice rink. They set up rubber mats so you could go inside the little homes along the side of the ice path, too, which was great for our imaginative kids. Well done, we'd go again!
  • Brought my kids for the first time summer 2017. It was great, so much to do. We got the ride passes which they enjoyed going on. There is a summer camp there also so I was worried about long wait times but I later realized that the camp groups had to lay the kids who have ride passes just for the day on first which was nice. The splash pad was small but lots of fun, my youngest loved the water slide. Lots of park space and just things to explore. They loved the big balloon to jump on and the big giant slides. I enjoyed the mist stations they had around the park, it was great for cooling down. They also had water fountains and you could bring in your own food. Tickets aren't too expensive. We will be visiting again this summer. It closed at five so we went to the mandarin for dinner which was only a ten minute drive away. Was a great day. Fun place!!!
  • She said YES! I emailed Storybook Gardens because I was looking to propose to my fiance (then girlfriend). Right away they were super helpful, friendly and amazing! I would highly recommend Storybook Gardens to to anyone looking for a cute, fun place to go. My fiance has been to Storybook gardens many times as a child and it holds a very special place in her heart. Thank you once again for the Storybook proposal!
  • 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!
  • Couple things were closed in the park when I brought my kids here. Didn't quite have the experience we hoped for. Manger was pleasant and gave us a voucher.
