About Coram & Our Centre

10 min walk from King's Cross, London
12 training and meeting rooms
First class catering

Conference, training and meeting space in the heart of London

With great views across our historic Campus, our 12 meeting rooms are suitable for a range of events and can accommodate between 4–160 delegates.

The Queen Elizabeth Centre, which includes the Rangoonwala Conference Centre, was opened by Her Majesty the Queen in December 2018. The centre is dedicated to the promotion of children’s rights and best practice. The new building is located in the heart of Coram’s historic site and is a celebration of the 350th anniversary of the birth of the charity’s founder, Thomas Coram.

Although just a few minutes walk from King’s Cross, Euston, and Russell Square stations, our contemporary buildings are surrounded by trees so retain a peaceful atmosphere, providing an exceptional setting for meetings, interviews, seminars, training, and corporate events.

We’ve been creating better chances for children since 1739

Thomas Coram

Thomas Coram’s story

Thomas Coram was a philanthropist and campaigner who’s best known for his advocacy of ‘unwanted’ children. His charity began life as the Foundling Hospital, set up in 1739 to provide care for abandoned children left dying on London’s streets.

While the Foundling Hospital no longer exists today, Coram carries on Thomas Coram’s fight for the rights of children and young people.
