We are renting our flat while we are away. This is a really typical London 1930s brick building surrounded by mature green trees outside. Large kitchen and separate living room with a piano, wifi etc - there are 2 playgrounds outside for children.
The area is Finsbury Park which is near Camden. Finsbury Park has a large Park! and busy high streets (Stroud Green Road) (Clifton Terrace) with cafes, restaurants, theatres and shops. Our building has no busy streets around it though, just lots of mature trees and playgrounds! Our nearest pub is the WB Yeats (check out great reviews on trip advisor) which does a great English breakfast and also a great English Roast Dinner at the weekend!
We are less than a 10 minute walk to Finsbury Park Station. Finsbury Park is on the two fastest tube lines - Victoria Line and Piccadilly Line which both get you to central London (eg oxford circus) from Finsbury Park Station in less than 10 minutes also. Go to the TFL website for travel information from Finsbury Park and you will see how easy it is to get around from here!
