Pistachios in the Park Coram’s Fields Now Open!

 

We are pleased to announce that we are Now Open at Coram’s Fields at 93 Guilford Street, WC1 1N

Named after Captain Thomas Coram (c. 1668 – 1751)a

philanthropist who created the London Foundling Hospital to look after unwanted children in Lamb’s Conduit Fields, Bloomsbury. It is said to be the world’s first incorporated charity.

As a great philanthropist Coram was appalled by the many abandoned, homeless children living in the streets of London. On 17 October 1739 he obtained a Royal Charter granted by George II establishing a “hospital for the maintenance and education of exposed and deserted young children.”

When, in the 1920’s the hospital was relocated outside London, the land was sold to a developer who demolished the hospital building itself leaving only the single storey colonnaded Georgian buildings. Following a campaign and lengthy fundraising by local people the land was turned into London’s first public children’s playground. Now known as Coram’s Fields
