Barnard Adventure Playground is a short walk from Angel or King’s Cross station situated in the west corner next to Barnard Park, with views reaching over King’s Cross to the West End. The building at Barnard is light and airy, with skylights offering natural light, in a flexible and comfortable space. The ground floor hosts the main hall that overlooks the outside play space and amphitheatre. In addition to the main hall, there’s dual access to a basement with a small open space and kitchen. The kitchen has a serving hatch that opens out into the small open space. If you fancy yourself as an entertainer, our outdoor amphitheatre is the perfect place to showcase your talent.
