30 Finsbury Square London

This is a 0.7-hectare (1.7-acre) square in northeast London, just north of the financial district. It was developed in 1777 on the site of a previous area of green space to the east of London known as Finsbury Fields, in the parish of St Luke’s and near Moorfields. It is sited on the east side of City Road, opposite the east side of Bunhill Fields. It is approximately 200m north of Moorgate and 400m south of Old Street. Nearby locations are Finsbury Circus and Finsbury Pavement.

Past residents of the square include Pascoe Grenfell Hill, Thomas Southwood Smith and Philip Henry Pye-Smith. It has also been the site of the bookshop of James Lackington and the first home of the rabbinical seminary that became the London School of Jewish Studies (1855–81), of the Greek Orthodox church of Saint Sophia and of the Roman Catholic Church of St Mary Moorfields (1820–1900).

Finsbury Square’s Guildhall is the traditional home of the City of London Yeomanry (now part of the Inns of Court & City and Essex Yeomanry, and housed a stone’s throw outside the old City boundaries, in Chancery Lane).
