Join our free local historic walk in Bloomsbury
Join a Coram Walk around the local area and find out about Thomas Coram, The Foundling Hospital, and how the charity created one of the loveliest parts of London
Coram's Historic Walks are now becoming a regular monthly event in the Coram calendar usually held on the last Friday of the month. This will be a lunchtime walk lasting approximately 45 minutes, with tea and cake served back in the Coram headquarters directly after. Beginning at the Thomas Coram statue outside the Coram Campus in Brunswick Square, the walk includes the Foundling Hospital site and the places where, during our 275-year history, our governors, friends and supporters lived. Along the way we’ll find out about Charles Dickens, our royal connections, the first London by-pass, and how this part of Bloomsbury became the centre for child health and welfare.
We end with tea and free gingerbread in Coram’s headquarters in Brunswick Square, developed by the Foundling Hospital to fund its pioneering work with children.
Our work creating better chances for children continues today with our ground-breaking services in advocacy, ceative therapies, and adoption and fostering.
Please sign up using the form on this page in advance to be sure of a place, as numbers are limited.
If you can't make it to this walk check our events calender for future dates.
