About Finsbury Park
Finsbury Park is a cosmopolitan area situated in the northern part of London rich in artistic culture and historical music shows. If you want to get around, the Finsbury Park station at Seven Sisters road provides access to bus, rail and the Tube—the local underground subway system. Sports and music events also happen regularly, and there is a vast selection of pubs and cafes for every palate and predilection.
Ask anyone in Finsbury Park, and the first restaurant they’ll suggest would be Asian fusion restaurant Dotori, located just around the corner from the station. Pappagone satisifies your Italian cravings, while the Faltering Fullback gets quite busy on the weekends and is considered one of the best pubs in London. You can also experiment with cuisine you haven’t tried yet. Be it Sardinian, Ethiopian or Moroccan, you’ll find it in Finsbury Park. After dinner, you can head on to Vagabond and Front Room Café for coffee.
The public park of the same name stood as the venue for concerts by timeless artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Oasis and Rage Against the Machine. The Finsbury Park music festival attracts annual visitors, with this year’s edition being headlined by Bob Dylan. I bet you didn’t know that Johnny Rotten, front man of the Sex Pistols, was actually born in Finsbury Park.
Apart from the performances, the park also functions as a place for relaxation and exercise, with the occasional art exhibit and cultural programs. The site was also used for political meetings, and is a good start to trace the area’s history.
Emirates Stadium, the home of Arsenal Football Club, is located nearby, drawing Gooners—colloquial name of fans—and football fanatics to visit the shops in the vicinity. The London Blitz American Football Club also attracts sports fans and is ideal for watching NFL.
Finsbury Park lets you experience the vagabond lifestyle, with easy access to the Tube and endless possibilities for accumulating cherished memories.
