Crystal Palace Park & Dinosaur Trail

Crystal Palace Park has the regular park attractions as well as the Dinosaur Trail.


The dinosaurs are located in Crystal Palace Park, one of London’s great green spaces. The Crystal Palace Dinosaurs section of the park is free to visit, too, and it is open during the park’s opening hours. The statues are outdoors, so please be mindful of local weather conditions. The statues are viewed from a distance and cannot be climbed. The site is step-free and accessible on an unpaved footpath, though this can be muddy in wet weather. The location is well sign-posted within the park. Don’t forget to take your smart phone so that you can enjoy the free audio guide while exploring these majestic creatures.  Visit
