Great to be reminded of this wonderful play centre and park for children in London. A quick look at their website shows what great work they do and why they deserve our support. It's definitely going to be somewhere I will be visiting with my grandchildren in the weeks to come.

Providing a cornucopia of facilities to delight its young patrons, the Bloomsbury-located Coram’s Fields is one of the most child-friendly open spaces in central London. Set on the former site of Thomas Coram’s Foundling Hospital, which was established in 1747 as a sanctuary for unwanted babies, Coram’s Fields continues to protect children by enforcing a strict policy that only permits adults to enter if accompanied by a child under 16. The children's park on this beautiful walled garden site is simply the best for miles around. There's an enormous sandpit and all sorts of toddler climbing frames, see saws and swings on the east side. There’s also an city farm and an adventure playground for the older kids with a zip wire, tunnel slide and lots of climbing equipment made out of natural materials. Robust ride-on toys come out during certain periods, and kids adore making the most of this large and beautiful inner city space on borrowed wheels. While their offspring explore the safe environs of the park, parents can sit back with a cup of tea purchased from the playground’s friendly café (which is open from March to October).
