Finsbury lies to the north of the City of London and forms part of the Borough of Islington, a district known as a bustling and vibrant business and residential area. Finsbury’s location north of the City, east of Old Street and west of Bloomsbury, in fact, goes a long way to explain why it is one of London’s most dynamic, diverse and interesting places for businesses and for local residents. Records of Finsbury as an inhabited area reach back around 800 years, but it is a district very much on the cutting edge of modernity in London in the 21st century. Indeed, nearby Old Street has become known as ‘Silicon Roundabout’ and as a hub for the best of British start-up technology and media businesses.
