Finsbury Park

Two new lifts will serve the northbound and southbound Victoria and Piccadilly line platforms, making the station step-free from street level to the trains.

We are working with City North Finsbury Park Ltd to open the new entrance accessed from Wells Terrace and Goodwin Street.

Plan your journey

Closure of Wells Terrace entrance

The entrance to Finsbury Park Tube station from Wells Terrace is now closed.

Passengers can use other entrances to get into and exit the station. Walking from Wells Terrace to the station entrance at Station Place via Stroud Green Road takes just a few minutes based on average walking speed. The route will be well advertised.

When it opens in 2019 the new, larger station entrance will be used from Wells Terrace or Goodwin Street. It will add a further step-free access route from street to the trains.

Platform access

The main staircase serving the northbound Piccadilly and Victoria line platforms is closed until December 2016 while we build the new lift shafts. Customers should use the smaller set of stairs and the spiral staircase during these works.

During the evening peak (around 17:00-20:00) we may use a one-way system that will mean customers can exit the platform via the spiral staircase only.

The station will be busier than normal so follow signs and staff directions, and allow extra time for your journey.

Customers switching between the Victoria and Piccadilly lines may find it easier to change at King's Cross St. Pancras.

What we've done

Finsbury Park Tube station is used by over 28 million passengers a year, making it the fourth busiest on the Tube network outside Zone 1. The number of passengers using the station during the week has increased by 20% since 2010 and is expected to continue to rise.

  • 2015: we brought ticket gates into operation at the Seven Sisters Road, Station Place and Wells Terrace entrance. The ticket gates help to increase security and safety for both passengers and staff and reduce congestion by allowing passenger flows to be controlled more efficiently and quicker journeys in the station, especially at peak times
  • 2014: we doubled the capacity of the spiral staircases at the station to make it easier to change between the Tube and National Rail services
