A free central London playground and park, not far from the British Museum, with play equipment for all under 16s including a huge sand pit for toddlers. There are even some farm animals and no adult can enter without a child so it's a safe space too.

It was a lovely afternoon, lots of laughter and talking going on, managed to get a great coffee and ice cream in the onsite cafe! Very relaxing while the ladies can go shopping at near by shops

Coram's fields is not the biggest of parks but adequate for sure! It has 4 different play areas for kids and a big lawn in the centre. There is also a zip line at the back and a coffee shop with a lot of seating outside. It's amazing how this offers hours of fun for the kids while being in... More

Turns out you have to be accompanied by a child to go to the playing fields - a nice touch. I will definitely be back next summer when my grandson from the US visits! But I'm sure it's going to be great.

We were so lucky to stumble across this place while walking to king's cross station. My toddler was devastated when we had to leave after a long play - she could have stayed for several more hours before she wanted to leave. The area is gated and inside there is a good choice of freestanding play structures - swings, a... More

We often go to Coram fields with our 5 year old when we are in central London and she needs to let off steam! As others have said, it's an enclosed public park reserved for people with children.

On a cold damp Saturday morning Coram's field was buzzing and filled with a hive of activity. Plenty of youngsters playing football. What a great legacy to to the man.

Site of Thomas Coram's Foundling Hospital. A former incarnation of Gt Ormond Street. Now a wonderful play area for kids. Great for younger kids.

A real run down air about this park. Outbuildings shabby, play equipment old and tired. The under fives toilets were closed and the locks on the female toilet doors had been removed. (Why?) The farm was shut and the paddling pool was full of leaves not water, even though the weather was still plenty warm enough for paddling (9 September... More

Took my 8yo, 5yo & 2mo expecting an amazing playground/park and was actually quite disappointed. The 2 main playgrounds are on opposite corners so if you have children that are in the different age abilities you are split on where to be. Thankfully my 5yo was able to manage in the older playground as my 8yo didn't want to be... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighbourhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
