Finsbury Park was an option of where to find a flat when we first started looking. Now, having been there, I can safely say that we picked well. It does have a large Homebase (home depot type) store which is what brought us out this way.
There is a large park and if you get off the tube at the Finsbury Park stop you walk right through it to get to Homebase. About a 20 minute walk, it couldn’t have been more pleasant on this gorgeous spring day.
And we stumbled across a group of tight rope walkers learning and practicing.
