“Finsbury park is popular”
Extremely friendly, your home away from home.
The area is not too trendy. It is rather homier and more oriented towards families, children and a community. People are a lot friendlier and the residences are a lot bigger than anything else closer to London. It is suitable for kids as there are a lot of neighbouring schools, very good quality ones as well. However, if you wish to have a "trendy" night it is better to travel a bit further and reach central London... this area is perfect for a chill weekend at home during rainy periods!
Around where I live, the closest tube stops and Finsbury Park and Manor House. Finsbury park offers a large range of important lines such as the Picadilly and Victoria lines, it is also one stop away from Highbury & Islington, a stop that has access to many national trains and important railway services. As for Manor House, it only offers the Picadilly line, however, I tend to find it calmer and smaller than Finsbury Park, whilst it may take longer to travel from Manor House, it Is calmer and a lot more accessible than Finsbury Park during rush hour. This brings me to my next point: Rush Hour. As this area is very residential, there are lots of people travelling to work towards central London which can be a bit of a pain during rush hour, often the Victoria Line is fast despite it being packed, the Picadilly Line, however, tends to be a bit slower and the tubes arrive with less frequency. I have found that the buses from central London take an extremely long route to get to the area, taking it an hour or so to get home, however most run by night as well and they are extremely useful to travel to suburbs.
My street is formed by many lovely neighbors, some families, students, couples and even some people living alone. This provides a lovely mix of personalities to live around. There is not a lot of noise on the street and if there is, it is mainly harmful to teenagers or bike riders. The bin services are great and always on time, this part of London also recycles and it works in a splendid way, the bin men are always on time and extremely nice. I live in a one-way street off the main road so we never have any time of traffic noise, however, I cannot speak for ones living on the main road.
The range of supermarkets is impeccable, from lower-cost supermarkets such as Lidl and Poundland to smaller and slightly more expensive stores such as Tesco and Sainsbury's, you can find anything you wish at nearly all price points. I would say the only improvement that my area could have offer supermarkets such as ASDA or Iceland hence more supermarkets which deliver more quantity based products for a lower price point. As for bars and restaurants, there are a number of small, family-owned hospitality services, normally you will not find big chains of either, therefore they are much more consumer-centric and extremely nice and generous staff members for a true home-like experience. However, as the rules of lockdown have recently been implemented, this part of the area has unfortunately not had the ability to flourish. On apps such as deliveroo and uber eats, however, most restaurants and bars around the area can be found and offer a spectacular service, this way I try to help my local business as much as possible!
Eat, walk, shop, leave and and come home because you'll want to!
It is a vibrant area, whether it is just the main street, entertainment, food or shops, the parks or just the transport hin there is a positive and happening atmosphere! Day and night, fun and active to be in but also essy to get in and out of. And the cats have settled in since moving here and there are plenty of good walk ways and parks for dog walking!
The transport links as said earlier are great; arguably the best in the city, easy into London via tube, overground trains and good buses across the city - the transport hub is close by and stations are active but not horribly busy normally, and very good.
It is quite but very close to transport hub and the main street which has great shops and a wide variety of good quality eateries.
N4 has a unique blend of qualities! Our area has great housing where we live, great space, good character to our house and street; it is remarkably quiet given the area is alive and buzzing with activity in normal times. Despite the current lockdown restrictions the area has every available amenity and fun outlet; food across Stroud green road, one of the most beautiful and fun pubs, 'The Faultering Fullback'! Restaurants are not just the solid reliable eateries you may want, but a wide selection of styles and types of eateries. Posh but affordable, and good quality and great tasting Italian and Turkish outlets for the whole family! The parks close by are obviously well known and popular but also, the local walkways are scenic and often no known to people - almost like stepping out into woods and trees. But also you aren't stuck, it has arguably one of the best transport hubs in the city, overground underground and even trains (not quite wandering free but across the city at a reasonable rate with buses too!). It is not the cheapest area in London but rental and housing is not the most expensive; close to central; wide variety of shopping and leisure; good atmosphere and friendly environment. Fundamentally though for some, good coffee! And more than one place!
Finsbury park is popular
The undergraouds links to central london which is very useful . It's in between 20 to 25 minutes . Bus are also useful as they come around every 5 minutes . However there are so many construction going which makes transportation slow
My area is usually noisy as there are different communities. However the best aspect is that is closer to my workplace and to shops . Transport link are good around .
Finsbury park is popular as every year there are are festival were many people join in . Also some entertainment like fun fair or circus
Great selection of parks & public transport
