Finsbury Avenue Square is delightful at night. The square itself is surrounded by a number of tall corporate office buildings, which aren’t so interesting. In the middle of the buildings is a square with a lighted floor. This is the fun. The lighted squares transition from colour to colour in a way that would make Saturday Night Fever, The Bee Gees and John Travolta proud.
Yes, there is a disco feel but no disco ball and the display is more than tasteful.
Finsbury Avenue Square is tucked away behind the more well known Broadgate Circle and a short walk from Liverpool Street Station.
Before you plan to make a night of it at Finsbury Avenue Square, do be discrete with your camera. Also, don’t plan to spend an hour or more here. Security guards will approach you if you stay too long. Yours truly was asked to leave one night when I got careless and obvious with my camera.
Because Finsbury Avenue Square is unexpected and quirky, I include it on my list of the best places to photograph London. And, not many people know about the area making it all the more special.
