Coram’s Fields – no unaccompanied adults Bloomsbury

corams fields

The sign says it all – this is the place for children not adults.  Last weekend we finally had a child with us so at long last we have been able to enter and explore all that Coram’s Fields has to offer.  It was well worth it and if we are in the area with children we will be back.

Suitable for Toddlers upward

Once inside you can find plenty of things to sustain your grandchild’s interest.  There are several playgrounds with a mix of accessible play equipment for all ages from toddlers to older children.  If only I was decades younger, I would have loved to have a go on the aerial slide.coram sand 2

There are also two large sand pits with equipment and a paddling pool that is open in the summer.

The city farm includes goats, chickens, rabbits, birds and a sheep to see.

If you are feeling hungry there is a small café which is open some of the year.  The surrounding streets are full of small cafes and also coffee shops as well as well known restaurant chains.

Coram’s Field have recently started a grandparents’ group to provide support for grandparents looking after children under 5!
