Favourite Building in Finsbury Park, Greater London*

Art deco, contemporary, futuristic, tall, short...

You can tell us more about Finsbury Park.

Favourite Building
  • The Old Dairy pub - fascinating exterior.
  • The mosque!
  • The Rainbow theatre - now a church and usually covered up in banners reading "get your holy oil here Feb 28th" etc. but it's a great old building and was even better when the Rainbow name was still up on it..... There's also a great looking church at the top of fonthill road - it looks like something out of ancient Greece but is tucked away.
  • The Hornsey Rd Baths which have long since closed but the 'diving lady' which is still iluminated at night is a sight that means your in finsbury park.I've heard that the site is to be built on soon but I should imagine the 'lady' is listed. Also 'The Rainbow theatre' which was venue for some really famous gigs in the past-Beatles/The clash/slade/Rod Stewart to name but a few. Now unfortunately a nouveux church!
  • The caff in finsbury park itself. I've just always loved it.
  • Alexander Buildings (that strange-but-cool tower across from the Blackstock pub).
  • If the Rainbow didn't have 'god' and 'jesus' written all over it... actually the church opposite my house is pretty. and my bedroom's nice too... and Tesco's is useful so is the tube station...
  • The Rainbow ...what a some mad-ass house of god
  • Lots when you look up though council need to rejeuvenate area
  • The Old Dairy Pub reminds us all of when london still had fields.
