Had arrange a birthday party picnic for my 5 year old grand daughter.The weather was awful and I thought it was going to be a disaster. However, as the only dry place was the cafe the young lady in charge there was very kind, friendly and helpful. We thoroughly recommend it and will use the cafe again.

Coram Fields is a free children's playground in the heart of London. It will be muddy underfoot if it is raining. This time of year there are piles of leaves to pile up, jump in and throw around. The playground equipment appears well maintained and the toilets reasonable given the number of children. We did not go to the" petting... More

Took our seven year old here after visiting the Viking exhibition nearby. He enjoyed playing in the park and eating his sandwiches. The place is a little run-down, but was being spruced up. It's a shame the café was closed, but there are a few places nearby.

We visited today and were thoroughly amazed as to what London and the entire UK has to offer. This is a park in London with no admission fee and is only for parents with kids-in-tow. The park is very pretty and the grounds well-kept. There is also a cafe that serves breakfast, snacks, tea, and ORGANIC ice cream! There is... More

This place is awful. The mini zoo is depressing, Want to see goats ready to comit suicide? got there! The place is full of teenagers smoking weed and the "green area", not so green. I as amazed to see there is a nursery there!

Mid way through a visit to the nearby Great Ormond Street Hospital, we went with our Grandson and mum to this lovely park. Lots of different, small play facitlities for young children, which he enjoyed. There is also a small "zoo" with goats, chickens and rabbits. There's a large sandpit with a water feature. Okay, but it looked rather mucky,... More

This free children's playground has swings, climbing structures, slides, open space, fields, a zip line and other miscellaneous things. Many area green spaces have the open space, but few have the diverse playground structures. There is added safety since adults can only enter with a child. The gate has an adult monitor that ensures this. It is a relatively short... More

After 3 hours at the Great Ormond Street Hospital (which is a positive and surprisingly enjoyable experience in itself) we headed on foot towards the Green Park Underground and almost didn't stumble across nor venture into Coram's Fields. Since the 1700's this site has provided for children, and today adults are only permitted to enter when accompanied by a child.... More

We had a nearby hospital appointment and before the appointment was due we took our kids (5 and 3) to this park and they had a ball of a time. It's fantastic that there was so much open space in the middle of central London which was free, and importantly, safe.

You cant tell what this place looks like until you get here but I have to say, it is not easy finding children's playgrounds well equipped in London, whereas large formal and proper parks for walking and strolling is easier. So having said this, Coram's is 10 minute walk from St Pancras and the British Museum. There isnt much around... More
