Finsbury Park

Finsbury Park is the transport hub of the borough, with the tube station being London’s busiest outside zone 1. But there is much more to this bustling part of the city than just its station. The area is fast becoming the jewel in north London’s cultural crown, with the Park Theatre, a grade-two listed park, the Platform performing arts centre for young people, and a brand new cinema coming soon.

Park Theatre opened back in 2013 to rave reviews, and shows a great range of plays. In addition to two state-of-the-art performance spaces, the building has an all-day café bar and a dedicated floor for community and outreach work. Its mission is to be a welcoming, vibrant home for the local community and beyond, providing world class entertainment that challenges perceptions and enables people to build a new tradition of theatre.
For teens there is the amazing Platform Youth Hub, housed in the former Hornsey Road baths with the iconic diving lady.

And of course there is the park itself, where you can play a range of sports and games, and has been host to some of the music world’s biggest names including Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Pulp, Oasis and The Stone Roses.
