The Old Finsbury Town Hall

Clerkenwell

The Old Finsbury Town Hall is a grade II* listed building and is registered with English Heritage as a building of great historical significance. This grand example of late 19th century Civic Architecture is found on the intersection of six Finsbury streets in the heart of Clerkenwell. The completed London landmark, then called The Vestry Hall was unveiled bythe Prime Minister Lord Rosebery barely a month after the completion of Rosebery Avenue on the 14th of June 1895.
Evans Vaughan's design of the Town Hall's brick and stonework is “free Flemish Renaissance”. There are Baroque influences seen in the female figures and carved frieze above the first floor at the Rosoman Street and Garnault Place junction. Many internal and external details are heavily influenced by Art Nouveau – quite a radical statement considering when the Town Hall was built.
