“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!
It’s a quiet tree lined street just off the main road
Trendy area which is rapidly regenerating. Finsbury Park station has just had a massive redevelopment.
Multiple day and night buses that go into central London direct. National rail, Victoria and Piccadilly lines from Finsbury Park station which go to central in 2 stops
It’s a quiet tree lined street just off the main road. Minutes from the park and transport links. Mostly young professionals and young families in the area
A wide variety of local shops, restaurants and cafes to suit all budgets. The Gillespie Nature reserve and wood berry reservoirs are lovely. So many wonderful restaurants on Clifton terrace
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
A great area for amenities and transport links
