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.

We visit Coram's Fields every year while we stay in London. It's in Bloomsbury, just a few minutes walk from Kings Cross and St Pancras. Adults can only enter when children are in tow, which makes it a safe haven. There are swings, slides, bridges, sandpits, something for all ages! There is even a zipline for those as young as...

If you are nearby then by all means call in if you intend to make a special trip here you will be disappointed as not a awful lot to do well kept but mainly for locals use.

The previous reviews seemed a bit misleading. I would not suggest going to this park, unless you are staying in the vicinity. The park is clean, there are a few cages for hens, a few rabbits, a couple of birds. The slides and play area are good. The staff has considered hygiene and there is soap, hand sanitizer etc.

As per most of the other reviewers there's lots to do here. We liked that's it seems an organic operation and not a corporate run facility. Consequently some of the features are a bit tired and need attention (especially the toilets). But my two kids loved it and did not want to leave, good enough recommendation for me!

This is a great play park in Bloomsbury. There are a few different zones aimed at different ages, I'd guess that ages 2-9 would be happy here. Our children certainly liked the zip wire, slides and roundabouts. There were also tennis courts and five aside areas for older children/sports and grassed areas for general play/picnicking It's free, contained and you're... More

My wife and I took our daughter here after I’d read about it and noticed it was close to the British Museum. After visiting the museum, it was a ten minute walk to Coram’s Fields where we were all delighted by the wonderful children’s park there. My daughter enjoyed multiple play areas within, including an awesome zip line she rode... More

Went here today on an impromptu visit after a trip to GOSH- this park is just across the road. What an amazing inner city park- there are extensive play areas for younger and older children, a small farm with animals, sports courts, grassy area with picnic tables and a children's centre with daily free activities. What more can you ask... More

I've not read any reviews on this park before I wrote this. This park was recommended by friends, but on the day I went it looked so dirty, this was the grass areas, the toilets and the animals. The children enjoyed the play equipment and I think they had a great time on it - but as an adult looking... More

As we were travelling with a very active 5 year old during our recent visit to London, I felt it was important to find a little bit of green space full of my daughters favourite play things and Coram Fields doesn't disappoint. Its perhaps a little dated now, but the park itself is ran by the community and only allows... More

Reasonably sized park area in the middle of London. nice to the little ones to stretch their legs. Climbing frame, slides and zip wire. There is a petting zoo but after seeing the state of the chickens we decided it was best not to venture there. This is the site of the original Foundling Hospital.

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
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.
