Who would have thought that tucked away in a suburban part of town there would be grand Georgian house with stunning grounds homing a whole host of dinosaurs!
Last week we went on the hunt for them and wasn’t disappointed.
After a more than a little fraught journey to from South London we made it to Osterley House in Isleworth, which a a stunning National Trust property with acres of beautiful land that is just perfect for hosting Jurassic Kingdom which is there from now until the 17th April.
It is accessible by public transport but a long walk from the train station for little legs or a short bus journey but the buses are only scheduled every 20 mins which was a long wait for my impatient children.
The car park however is huge and free to National Trust members of £7 all day.
Time slots are available to book easily on line for the event and I would suggest you allow yourself plenty of time as there is lots to see and do.
The Jurassic Park style entrance paved its way into the attraction itself which has you following a path through the grounds spotting dinosaurs as you go.
Some are static but the majority have moving limbs and sound effects which the children loved.
It is a far more interactive experience than I had imagined and there are dinosaurs that you can climb onto, a sand pit that lets the little ones try their hand at becoming an arciologist and digging out bones and an education tent where you can sit and watch a short show that explains a little more about dinosaurs.
As far as eating goes the places is perfect for picnicking as there are so many great places to pitch up. There is also a small selection of fast food stands where Izzy count resist the churros!
The children also has a great time making us of the National trust facilities which are always a winner by tree climbing, den building and swinging on the rope swings.
All in all it is the perfect day out for dino fans and even those that aren’t so keen could easy make us and enjoy everything else Jurrasic Kingdom has to offer.
*we were given tickets for the purpose of this review and they are all my own, honest opinions.

This looked and sounded absolutely brilliant, so annoyed we missed it because it was just down the road! xx
It was a really great attraction. Hopefully it will be back soon x
That looks like so much fun. I really hope they do this again next year as we can’t make it the Birmingham exhibits at the end of the month #CountryKids
It seems to have been really popular so I’m sure it will be back round again x
This looks fantastic, I think my son would have loved it!
It was great for dino fans x
Now this looks amazing, I really expected you to say the dinosaurs were static. What fun to be able to climb on some and hear the sound effects, this would really add to the atmosphere and the National Trust grounds is the perfect place to install a Jurassic world. I wonder if they would sell them all to Coombe Mill when they finish with them?
I”d love to have them here!
Thank you for sharing a lovely day out on #CountryKids
Oh how brilliant would they be at Coombe Mill, the children….and adults would be in their element x
Oh wow this definitely looks like a place my mini men would enjoy if we still lived in the UK. The dinos look amazing #countrykidsfun
It was a really good day out x
Osterley Park is a lovely place to visit and having the dinosaurs there makes it even better. The dinosaurs look amazing – what a fun day out 🙂 #countrykids
I am so gutted to have missed this! Monkey would have loved it and the other locations are too far for us. Espically as he reliably tells me he wants to be a palientologist when he grows up. Can’t beat the National trust for a good day out. #CountryKids
This looks like a fantastic day out! Dinosaurs are a lot of fun!
My boys would love such a day out. It looked like so much fun!
