Finsbury Circus

Finsbury Circus is the oldest and largest public park and an elliptical square in the City of London, England. It has an immaculately maintained Lawn Bowls club in the centre. A bandstand is located nearby. The nearest Tube station is Moorgate, to the West, and the park is also close to Liverpool Street Station; both are within about two hundred meters. It is located in the Coleman Street ward.

Finsbury Circus has been used as the finish point for the Miglia Quadrato each year. In recent years it has also played host to the start of the Miglia Quadrato since the event start was removed from Smithfield Market.
