Coram's Fields is a unique 7-acre playground and park for children in central London. It is free to use and provides a safe and stimulating environment where children can play freely. Adults are only permitted with a child and there is always staff available to ensure all is well, just as at the Diana Memorial Playground.

It's good for children of all ages and is a great place to visit at the end of a day's sightseeing so the kids can go crazy for a while and you can relax with a coffee.
