Playing bowls in the heart of London

Finsbury Park Bowls Cub has been part of life in Finsbury Park since 1900.

The club is found near the Endymion Road entrance to the park – the boating lake and Park Café lie nearby. The bowling green is secluded by trees on three sides, with a glimpse of the lake and wild geese. On a fine day it can offer the sense of a break in the country, without the journey time or cost. The luxury of space, at a bargain price.

The club is run by its members and maintains its own clubhouse and grounds. We are delighted to welcome new members, whether experienced bowlers or anyone ready to give the game a try.
