If you’re living at Sketch House, you’re only a short tube journey away from central London. However, there are plenty of things to do in the local area. Here’s where I would recommend starting:
The Parkland Walk: Now that summer is finally beginning to make an appearance, walks are no longer something to avoid at all costs. Opposite Finsbury Park National Rail station and directly across the road from the Arsenal shop, you’ll find the entrance to this beautiful nature walk which leads to Highgate underground station.
Finsbury Park: At Sketch House, we're lucky enough to have a park that is only a 5-minute walk away. Finsbury Park hosts a whole range of sports courts from basketball to tennis. You can even go canoeing. Also, it's a less crowded option for picnics and BBQs than very popular central parks like Hyde Park. Wireless Festival is also held there over summer!
Park Theatre: Another great thing about Sketch House is that we have a theatre right on our doorstep. The Park Theatre offers discounted ticket prices to local residents (price varies per show but are normally under £20). As well as theatre shows they occasionally hold exhibitions too. Park Theatre also has a cute cafe and bar with outdoor seating.
