London is really expensive to live in however you do get lots of access to amazing places to eat out and go on nights out. The downside is that nights out can be very expensive. The tube makes it easy to travel around the city
There is much to do in the area no matter the time of day. Night clubs are good, and there are limitless places to explore to on the same tube. Westfield is relatively nearby and is the local social place for Uel, it’s not to expensive either as a free bus ride is available on campus, and the tube is relatively cheap. However night outs are expensive here so most of the money you’ll be saving will go there or on papa johns.
If you like rainy weather and humidity mixed with the UK’s centre of capital and breaking news from a prime minister that plans like a clown, this is the place for you! That aside, if you enjoy walks by the river and do not come from a Eastern Europe or any other backgrounds with better air quality you will come to enjoy for what it has to offer. Unless in lockdown, London has everything you can want within the UK sphere. Would’ve said EU but its now much pricier to order EU things to UK, might have something to do with clown like plans. Oh well, actually as long as you have the money to afford it, it will be okay. People go about their ways so theres privacy too I guess.
I mean it is London. Who doesn't love it. Rent seems high but actually you just need to look for better deals. Currently I am living in zone 1/2 and I pay 400£ a month. After first uni year just try to find some friends and rent full property - it cuts the price
Be that as it may, the reality is, nothing can really compare to the full experience of on-campus college life and when making that all-important decision on where to go to college, the benefits of a beautiful campus shouldn’t be underestimated.
The buses are all the time same with the underground we aren't people who tend to go out however there are some restaurants that are nice. I have speant plenty on buying clothes and there are lots of food shops around especially lidl's and co-op.
London is a notoriously expensive city for living costs and night life. However, I encourage students to take advantage of student nights at various bars and clubs across London, including student bars on campus, which are often much more affordable. Transport is competitively priced compared with other cities in the UK, such as Manchester. The cheapest way to travel by public transport in London is by bus, where anyone with a contactless card or Oyster can make an unlimited number of journeys within one hour for £1.50.
It’s London. You know what you’re getting. The best nights out, best food, best shops but the highest prices. Wouldn’t want to spend my late teens/early twenties anywhere else though, it’s my favourite place on Earth.
London is obviously more expensive than other cities, but it is amazing. The nights out are cheap if you go on a weekday and to a student night- I often use the app Fatsoma. The transport is amazing, it's so cheap
Central London - Euston. Expensive, but there are ways around that, and the range of things you'll find is vast. Nights out are great, but also expensive. Plenty of transport options in the underground and bus system, although traffic can be hectic. Always interesting things going on, and truly is a city that never sleeps.
London is a bustling city to live in. There is ALWAYS something going on. But!- it's not cheap. Cost of public transport and living costs are astronomical. I love the diversity of people and opportunities to improve oneself. But everything has a cost. A high cost. So be prepared to live very cheaply. To be angry at public transport being delayed BUT mostly frequent. Lots of activities on offer, however often very expensive. I love the city, but it is definitely in a gentrification phase.
I'm from the countryside so it's nice to have buses that run more than once every hour and a half. Bring headphones and prepare for traffic jams if you're crossing the city. It's also f****** expensive so stick to pubs qnd cafs close to uni.
Living costs aside, London is by far one of the most amazing cities in the world to live in! As large as it is, there is a ridiculous amount of areas to visit and places to explore, all of which have their own disinct feel. Beyond its beauty, the great nights out and the plethora of places to visit, London is home to an unparalleled public transport system in terms of convenience, safety and regularity. If you can afford the rather steep living costs, London is an absolutely brilliant city to live in!
