Hookup Spots in Finchley, Greater London*

Inside Information and Stuff Only Locals Know

You can tell us more about Finchley.

Hookup Spots
  • The massive tesco
  • no where cos its shit
  • Tally Ho Corner.
  • The crappy quarter pipe in Friary park is occasionally host finchley's few goths and grungeys, after the skaters are summoned home for tea. Sadly outnumbered by hoards of trendies however, who hang around in that flowery bit by the bowling green. Beware weekend nights: once the orange tree (aka the Creche) reaches kicking out time, Friary park turns into an unfortunate haven of drunken teenagers. Thankfully, people are unaware of how devoid of life friary park is at night- because of the homeless shelter on Woodhouse road, I've never even seen a homeless person there at night- let alone someone who may actually be of any harm. If it wasn't for the early morning dog-walkers, I'd sleep out there a heck of a lot more often. The foxes make scary-ass noises though!!!
  • Go North,North the air is fresher there
  • The graveyard of St Mary's Church, Church End, is not just a squirrel's paradise. Youngsters like sneaking off there for a quick fag or swig of booze.
  • Finchley Central Tube Station, nestling on the gently tarcoated hillsides of a railway embankment, is just the place to hang out if you want to spend an evening watching trains, waiting for friends or just want to while away your hours being stood up.
  • On the park benches outside Tesco's, a favorite spot for tramps, vagrants and underage drinkers
