"In March 1918, self-proclaimed World's Greatest Magician Chung Ling Soo (or Bill Robinson as his parents knew him!) performed his world famous "catch a bullet with his teeth" trick at the Wood Green Empire. Sadly, it didn't work and it him square in the chest."

There's a peaceful spot along the New River, which winds unassumingly through the residential streets to Finsbury Park.

Daniel Burrell

The Mackenzie Garden in Finsbury Park is a peaceful spot that I like to visit when I have the time.
