FONTHILL ROAD



We all have that one place that we rarely visit but love it because you always come home with a bargain…. or 5!! 

My mum is from London as so she knows all the little places to grab a bargain and Fonthill Road is one of my favourites, one of the best-kept secrets of bargain-hunting ladies of North London. It’s no ‘up street shopping centre’; in fact it’s far from that and instead is a little street with individual shops down each side. A lot of the shops are full of evening dresses, wedding dresses and suits but there are a lot of fashion shops where you can grab yourself a bargain if you don’t mind spending a bit of time going through rails and seeing what’s on offer. 

Fonthill Road is just behind Finsbury Park train station and off Seven Sisters Road. Lots of shops sell factory-outlet clothing to the trade and general public at ridiculously low prices. Outfits come from all over the globe; Italy, Spain, France, Turkey and India. Don’t get me wrong, a lot of the stuff is rubbish, but some of the shops have items which are from high street stores like Topshop and River Island but the label is cut out. The dresses are DRESSES – not exactly the outfit that someone would wear for a supermarket shop (although they do have some cheap, more casual attire) and there are bargains to be had if you look properly. Bridesmaids, people desperate for a new wedding outfit are out in force at Fonthill Road, and it doesn’t disappoint; I reckon most people if searching properly can get a bargain!
