Family Attractions For Highbury Centre Guests

When you’re travelling with children, stress levels can be high. At the Highbury Centre, we completely understand this and look forward to welcoming families to our beautiful and tranquil space. Our beautiful enclosed garden has play equipment for our younger guests as well as being ideal for games of chase, tag and hide and seek. We understand that children need to let off steam and if that can happen while their parents relax with a cup of tea, watching their children playing, then so much the better. Parents are always responsible for their children, in the house and the garden.

Our comfortable lounge has a TV and DVD player. We have a large selection of DVDs suitable for families. Sometimes, we all need to veg out and this is the ideal place to do it, for all ages.

Family life can be exhausting, all the more so when the family are engaged in full-time Christian work overseas. Part of our service is signposting our guests to fun and family-friendly spaces in London.

A few minutes’ walk away is Highbury Fields, a huge green open space with a sandpit, play equipment and water play feature. The children can run around to their hearts’ content and parents can relax with a coffee from the nearby refreshments hut.

Freightliners City Farm offers lots of fun and educational activities, including beehives. The café is open from Thursday to Sunday.

For children aged 12 and under, Barnard Park Adventure Playground offers lots of space to let off steam. Stretching over 9 acres in the heart of Islington, the park offers a huge adventure playground, a seasonal water play feature, football and baseball pitches and a peaceful perennial meadow for relaxing strolls.

Woodberry Wetlands is a beautiful wildlife sanctuary with ponds, dykes and woodland. There’s a woodland trail, reeds walkway, waterside path and roof terrace café.

Coram Fields in Bloomsbury runs a “no adult can enter without a child” space. With a pets’ corner, zipwire, play equipment and seasonal sandpit and paddling pool, as well as plenty of open spaces for running around in, this 7-acre green area is ideal for all the family.

Whatever your age or your situation, we want you to relax, revitalise and restore yourselves with us at the Highbury Centre. We look forward to welcoming you.
