Keep busy in N4 with Time Out’s guide to Finsbury Park and Manor House restaurants, bars, pubs and things to do

Affectionately known as ‘Little Algiers’, Finsbury Park is home to London’s largest Algerian population, as well as plenty of students, surly youths with low-slung trousers, boozy Arsenal fans and priced-out-of-Crouch-End mumsy-types. It’s also starting to develop cultural hubs, as canny renters realise they can save a few bob, still have access to two tube lines, and have a massive lovely park to enjoy. Party animals will appreciate the warehouse parties which regularly rumble on all weekend, while Finsbury Park itself is a vast, sprawling patch that’s got a bit of everything for everyone.
