High Sports
Swiss Cottage Sports Centre, Adelaide Rd., Camden
Rock climbing is a seriously intimidating sport for beginners, but High Sports team eases nerves with informal classes and supervised sessions targeted for newcomers. With gym locations all over London, they are an especially great resource for kids, who can learn the basics (and safety) in their Junior clubs. For those who are less committed, they also do birthday parties and one-time drop in classes, which do a fantastic job of occupying kids on rainy days.

The northern part of the park is a semi-wild woodlands, while the rest of the park boasts the famous Orangery, tennis courts, a cricket pitch, a Japanese garden, a giant chess set, an impressive children's Adventure Playground, and even a youth hostel.
