Insider London – 6 things we love about Finsbury Park

Finsbury park

An area with a distinctly cosmopolitan feel, Finsbury Park is a mix of commercial premises, shops, bars and restaurants.

But there are also a few notable attractions that visitors of all ages can enjoy – here are six things that we love about Finsbury Park and reasons why they're well worth a visit when you stay at our Finsbury Park hotel.

The Barbican

Music lovers from all over the world come to London exclusively to visit the Barbican, and with good reason.

Although many people find the building a little severe thanks to its brutalist style of architecture, the acoustics within the building are world-class and attract orchestras and soloists from all over the world who come to perform an array of classical presentations.

If you have an interest in unusual architecture, then you can take a 90-minute walking tour of the building and discover why the site was developed as a hub for musical talent following the destruction of previous buildings during the blitz.

Located just a nine-minute walk away from our Finsbury Square hotel, it's a great place to catch an evening or afternoon concert.

Finsbury Square Bars

With so many Finsbury Square bars to enjoy during your visit, you’ll be completely spoilt for choice!

From tradition English pubs to high-end rooftop bars with far-reaching views over London at The Aviary, there’s something to suit all tastes and pockets.

If a night on the tiles is on the cards, Finsbury Square bars certainly won’t disappoint, so get glammed up to paint the town red at the Montcalm spa Finsbury square before heading out for the evening.

The Park Theatre

A small and intimate venue featuring the latest independent films and productions, the Park Theatre is just a short stroll from our Finsbury Square hotel and has a regularly updated schedule of evening and matinee performances.

Tenpin Bowling

Who doesn’t like a little friendly competition, especially against family members?!

Located just by Finsbury Park train station is Rowan’s Tenpin Bowling, where you’ll be able to show off your bowling skills and play a few family-friendly arcade games with the kids.

Food is available, but if you're looking for something a little more appealing than your standard fast food, then there are several great quality Finsbury Park bars that serve fantastic meals at reasonable prices.

Finsbury Park

Finsbury Park is a small, but well-maintained green space that’s ideal for an early morning run or stroll after breakfast.

And if you overdo your morning workout, it's just a few minutes back to our hotel where you can enjoy a soothing massage at our Montcalm spa Finsbury square.

Situated in the centre of a bustling neighbourhood, it’s the perfect place to take a brief break from the hustle and bustle of city life.

The Silver Bullet

If your musical tastes are more contemporary than classical, then you won’t go far wrong with a visit to the Silver Bullet.

With regular live music from up and coming artists and cover bands, a night at the Silver Bullet can help you discover the next rising stars of the musical world and enjoy some top-class live performances.
