Finsbury Square EC2 is a large green area which has a junction with Sun Street. The west side of Finsbury Square has City Road running through it. Finsbury Square lies on the edges of the London Borough of Islington although it is more typical of the City of London. First built up in the late 18th century, Finsbury Square was intended to create a West End atmosphere in the City business district and different styles of building were built on each side of the Square. Finsbury Square was the first area first recorded as having gas lighting permanently installed. Most of the original buildings were destroyed in the Second World War so most of todays surrounding offices are relatively new.
Finsbury Square itself consists of grassy areas, well kept flower beds and exotic plants. Famously, there are also bowling greens often used for games of Boules. There are four separate areas used for boules tournaments; parties; and summer events. A very nice attraction for nearby City workers, local residents and tourists. Islington Borough Council also in the process of developing the square retaining the bowling green and creating new lawned areas, trees and seating around the square.
Bright state of the art offices overlook Finsbury Square. Citygate House at 50 Finsbury Square is a prime example of recent architectural styles in the City. Citygate House at 50 Finsbury House is now Bloombergs European Headquarters. Restaurants and cafes are plentiful and include options such as Bar Med and Pret a Manger.
Finsbury Square is mixture of retreat and modern architecture and lies minutes away from Liverpool Street, Broadgate Circle and Moorgate. The square has the benefits of the nearby Liverpool Street Train station and Moorgate and Broadgate offices and attractions.
Across City Road on the west of Finsbury Square is Bunhill Fields. Bunhill Fields used to be a cemetery until the mid 19th century. Today, the area acts as a small park with some monuments still standing.
Finsbury Square lies in the middle of a triangle of stations. Moorgate on Moorgate is the closest underground station south of the square following on from City Road. As well as being a National Rail train station, Moorgate is a stop for the Northern line, Hammersmith and City line, Circle line and Metropolitan line.
