Finlayson Centre

3.9/5
11 Reviews
Open Open 24 hours
Address: Tampere

What people are saying:

The textile factory was founded by Scottish industrialist Finlayson in the 19th century and was the first building in Northern Europe to use electric lighting. The red brick structure outside the factory is still intact, and the interior has been transformed into restaurants, bars, shops and cinemas. There are many art studios, museums, restaurants and cafes, which is a great place to kill time.

    Nice for an evening stroll

    This area is nice for an after dinner stroll. Nice asphalt painting and song quotations. Still very quiet due to Corona, and some restaurants closed.
