Finsbury Town Hall, Rosebery Avenue EC1 - Islington

Town hall, built in 1895 to the design of C Evans Vaughan in an eclectic 'Free Renaissance' style, with a magnificent public hall on the first floor with elaborate plasterwork in Belle Epoque manner. The building is now in use as dance studios with the main halls available for public use. The owners have undertaken some repairs, but Historic England is in discussion with them to secure further necessary external works.
