Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Named after its grand Victorian park, Finsbury Park, the area merges into Highbury to the south east and Crouch End to the north.
We know many of our neighbours and everyone gets on well. Almost everything you could want from urban living is available in a 1 mile radius and with the public transport links on our doorstep, a car is not needed. Two stops and 12 mins on the Victora line will connect you with trains to the rest of the country or to Paris (should you be ready to leave).
We have lived here for 13 years and are very happy to stay.

Buzzy restaurants
Patron is a small French restaurant a few minutes walk away. Great food and cocktails.. Dotori is a great Japanese/Korean restaurant 2 mins walk and Farang for Thai street food if you love spice!!! Also recommended Osteria Tufo, Italian in Fonthill Road. https://www.theinfatuation.com/london/guides/where-to-eat-and-drink-in-highbury
Cool bars
A couple of classic pubs up the road, The Woodbine with sports screens and The Bank of Friendship
Cozy cafés
