NileGuide Expert Says:
Dinosaur obsessed Victorians built life size replicas for the public and have recently been restored. The small museum is open weekends only.
- This extremely large park in south London hosts several different exhibitions (the small museum is free), outdoor concerts and an increasingly popular fireworks display in November, in honour of Guy Fawkes' Day. The park boasts a dinosaur area where the tyrannosaurus lurks among the reeds and the lake. There's a wonderful lily pond with a stage on which concerts are performed. The site of the old crystal palace is also visible. A large sports hall is located within the grounds of the park. Crystal Palace Park was, and still is, a popular place for campers, not only because it is a lovely place to stay but also because many buses stop outside the park and will take you into Central London or further south so that you can explore.
