Personally, I think its a good resource especially as its the only one for miles but its dirty and the cafe is overpriced and mediocre at best, filthy places to sit and I won't be going back with my kids. Been a couple times to give it a go but its badly looked after.

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 a 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.

The Taming of the Shrew set in American teendom ('Padua', a suburb of Seattle) may not sound a great idea. A snooty riot grrrl (Stiles) as Kate/Katharina? An impoverished Jim Morrison clone (Ledger) as Patrick/Petruchio? Another loudmouthed, narcissi...

After 2004’s straight-to-DVD sequel, the superior original is re-released, digitally restored, to mark the film’s twentieth anniversary. Aside from making fans feel very old, this is also likely to make them feel just as jubilant and light-footed as...

Talk about transcending your roots. In ten short years (and eight rather long instalments), the Harry Potter series has gone from harmless, derivative boarding-school hi-jinks aimed squarely at bookish pre-teens to Julie Walters calling Helena Bonham...

Falstaff is an ’80s sex god, a vision in gold collars and slashed shirts, serenading the audience with everything from Ian Dury and the Blockheads to Elton John. Punks and hippies drift happily around the set, Home Counties housewives dance around with...

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.
