Crystal Palace Park

*dinosaur sculptures at Crystal Palace Park in London
Perhaps slightly unconventional but the seeing the dinosaur sculptures at Crystal Palace Park was on the top of my list of things to do in London. I have visited London before (remember when I had long red hair and was fresh out of college?), so I had seen some of the more traditional sights in the heart of the city. That is one of the great things about cities; you can visit them again and again and still find some corner you haven't seen before. Crystal Palace Park is on the outskirts of the city, but your Oyster card gets you there without hassle and a variety of signs and the sounds of excited children guide you directly to the dinosaur park. A fence unfortunately keeps you from climbing all over most of the dinosaur sculptures, but they're still pretty fascinating and after a busy week of tourist-ing around London it was a nice escape. I highly recommend a visit for anyone looking for a break from the crowded city (as long as you don't mind children, since it's a popular place for families). Eat a 99 Flake and rest your feet in full view of the Iguanodon sculptures.

  1. I need all of your dresses! ;) So pretty!


  2. This place looks amazing, I'll definitely have to pay a visit if I'm ever around London!

  3. gorgeous!! that dress is amazing.

  4. that dress is so pretty!


  5. This is such a great dress, I love the print and the open back. I was looking at the sheinside website after following your link, and they have so many options, and their prices are really great. I would love to know what you think of the quality of their clothes, given the low price!

  6. @bethany quality is hit and miss--this dress has buttons along the shoulder, pockets, and the skirt is lined--it's excellent especially for the price. Some of their dresses however aren't lined, so sometimes the quality more fits the price. But usually I'm really pleased with how quickly something arrives and how nice it feels on. Oh also they can run a size small.

  7. I can't decice what I love most: your hair (YOUR GINGER HAIR WAS AMAZING), your photography, or your style - duh.

  8. Such a lovely post, really great images and your outfit fits the scene so perfectly! This makes me miss living in South-East London so much, this used to be 10 minutes away from where I lived!

  9. I was just in London a few months ago and I sooo wish that I had known about this park!

  10. I really like your style! Your tones of photographs are pretty as well. I saw your photo in Modcloth's Style Gallery and it brought me here.
    Are you interested in following each other's blogs? It would be awesome! Let me know what you think. :)

  13. So glad to see south east London getting some love! I'm a local and that park is one of my favourite places to hang. You're wrong about it being on the outskirts of London though - it's only halfway out!

  14. @BellaRose oh dear my London geographical lack-of-knowledge is showing!
