Be a-mazed at the dinosaurs!
For a fun-packed family day out in the south-east of London, come to Crystal Palace Park. Is this a terrific venue or what? The historic park plays host to a museum, boating lake, national sports centre, kids’ play area and farm, plus a seriously cool maze and even a dinosaur trail. All this and festivals too! The ill-fated Crystal Palace building itself was heralded as the most spectacular building of a generation, built as part of the 1851 Great Exhibition. The park was later developed to hold an enlarged and improved version of the original, which was tragically lost in a fire in 1936. The intention behind the park was to educate and inspire, and so the addition of full-scale model dinosaurs was a huge success that continues to this day. However, the park is perhaps best known for the variety of great family facilities and events that take place every year. Weekenders such as the Caribbean-infused Windrush Festival and the travelling Kisstory Festival have been huge successes over the years. You can buy Crystal Palace Park tickets for all of these great family-friendly events with StubHub.
Annual music extravaganzas
In the 1960s the addition of the National Sports Centre brought cricket and football finals to the park along with many thousands of new visitors. And, of course, we shouldn’t forget to talk about the local team! Crystal Palace is also known as the home of the legendary football team nicknamed "the Eagles", Crystal Palace FC, who played in the first-ever season of the Premier League. Back in the park, concerts including one by the hit UK band UB40 have attracted huge ticket-buying crowds. Chart-topping songs such as "Red Red Wine" and "Rat in Mi Kitchen" inspired a generation back in the 1980s and the familiar lyrics rang out loud and true throughout the park to the delight of the outdoor audience. The park’s terrific facilities and great transport links make this is an ideal venue for any number of public events, festivals and concerts.
