Finsbury Park Mosque

North London Central Mosque, maybe better known as Finsbury Park Mosque (its former name) is a mosque serving the large and diverse Muslim community of north London, made up largely of people with origins in the predominately Islamic countries of North Africa, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Somalia.

Infamous during the 1990s as the power base of the radical Egyptian Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri and the epitome of the tabloid press depiction of the UK's capital as "Londonistan", the mosque was opened in 1994 in a ceremony attended by Prince Charles.

The mosque is close to Finsbury Park tube station on the Piccadilly and Victoria Lines, as well as a short walk or cycle from Arsenal's Emirates Stadium.
