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.

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

Nice play area for children, though just rabbits and chickens to see and the toilets were not clean. I probably wouldn't go back.

We often visit the hospitals local to Coram fields and its always clean and tidy. Always have a coffee and a slice of delicious cake at the cafe. They always have activities on for toddlers too and the animals always go down well with the kids!

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.
