Discover the best of Finsbury Park with this insider’s guide.

A buzzy North London hub, Finsbury Park offers all the best of London. You’ll find shops for everything you need, restaurants for any occasion, and a district that is a melting pot of cultures. 

That’s actually quite appropriate as Finsbury Park grew to prominence as a convergence point of all the expanding boroughs around it; a meeting place for people on their way about London. 

As the world has become more global, so have Finsbury Park’s residents. 

No where is that better reflected than in the neighborhood’s local restaurants. Bangladeshi curry houses, Cypriot kebabs, and African restaurants to boot. 

A visitor should try them all, then perhaps a stroll through the park that gives the area its name to walk the meal off. 

Practical Tips for Exploring Finsbury Park, London

  • The best tube station is Vauxhall on the Northern line
  • If you’re looking for more things to do in the area, walk over to Nine Elms (literally next to Vauxhall), it’s a new up and coming neighbourhood with bars and restaurants you’ll want to try out
