Finsbury Park Station

Zone 2 Tube, rail, and bus station on the Victoria and Piccadilly lines.

Best avoided on match days, if possible, since it will be overrun with Arsenal fans.

There are three entrances: the main one (shown in the photo on this page) is on the north-west side of Seven Sisters Road where it intersects with Stroud Green Road, while the others are reached via longish passageways from Wells Terrace photo and Seven Sisters Road.

Unusually for a zone 2 station, there are no ticket barriers. There are Oyster validators before you reach the platforms though. Slightly confusingly, the validator at the main entrance is just beyond the notice which warns you that you'll be fined if you're caught beyond it without a valid ticket or validated Oyster card.

There are, however, plans to install ticket barriers, with work beginning in 2009 if planning permission succeeds. This entry on the London Connections blog has more details.
