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.

Central London Student Life

Even though London is a huge city, if you are studying and living in Central London it will feel smaller than you think and you’ll find yourself even bumping into friends. There is so much to see and do, our top tip would be to do them during the week as the weekends get packed with tourists and visitors.

Cost of Living

Very high living cost !!

Nights Out

Whatever type of night out you are into, you’ll be sure to find it in Central London! A lot of the nightclubs are expensive as they are aimed at tourists and workers but once you get there you’ll be sure to find the top student nights which have pleasing entry and drink prices! The places to go can change quite quickly so stay up to date with the latest hot spots by keeping an eye on Design My Night and the Fatsoma app.

Public Transport

Getting around London via the tube and bus is easy to navigate, once you’ve understood how it works. The best piece of advice is to download the CityMapper app, it does all the work for you to find the quickest and easiest way to get from A to B. Make sure to get an 18+ Oyster Card to get 30% off public transport; every little helps! If you are living and studying in Central London it is also easy to get around by foot or by bike. Just remember to wear a helmet and brightly coloured clothes when cycling and to plan your route before you set off.

Top 10 free things to do in Central London

1

Get ready to have your socks blown off at the home to one of the world’s most impressive art collections and you can view the permanent collection for absolutely nothing!

2

Located in Bloomsbury, the British Museum holds a remarkable collection that spans over two million years of human history and culture. From Egyptian mummies to the Rosetta Stone, there are a huge amount of artefacts you can cast your eyes on.

3

This skyscraper, known affectionately by Londoners as the walkie talkie (when you see the building in real life it will make sense), is London’s highest public garden. The views of the city are among some of the best and it’s all for free!

4

Back on the ground, Hyde Park is the most famous and the largest park in London. Whether you are fancy a stroll, jog or cycle, there is so much to explore you’ll never get bored of visiting, any time of the year.

5

On one of our visits to Hyde Park head west to Kensington Gardens. It’s a beautiful part of the park which has Kensington Palace as its backdrop. There’s the Albert Memorial, The Serpentine Gallery, a temple and even a statue of Peter Pan.

6

Fancy viewing some modern art? Head to the Tate Modern on the Thames, where it is free to view the permanent collection which includes Pollock, Warhol, Matisse and Picasso.

7

Outside Buckingham Palace on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 11am, you’ll be able to see one of the best ceremonies in London. The Queen’s Soldiers, dressed in tall bearskin hats, stomp around in time to music as they change roles.

8

There’s no better way to get to know London and see some of the most iconic sites than to walk along the Thames in Central London. You’ll find pathways and can criss-cross over to either side using the famous London bridges. 

9
Festivals & Events

There are a huge amount of festivals and events that you can watch, spectate and join in with! Some of the most well known are Pride in London, the London Marathon, Chinese New Year parade and the Boat Race.

10

One of the most popular areas to visit in London. Even when you don’t have money to spend, it's a great place to be. There are always street entertainers, you can window shop and do some great people-watching. Also, make sure to head up to Neal’s Yard to marvel at this unexpected colourful square.

Living in the cen...

Living in the centre can be very expensive simply because of high rents and access to only premium supermarket options. Eating out can be very expensive too but there's a fair selection of Weatherspoons around the centre to ease the experience on the pocket. Night outs are just as fun everywhere but coming home late can feel safer the central you get. I lived most of my time in the pandemic so that was short lived. If you're a shopper you don't need to look any further than central London. Living in the centre can mean spending close to no money on transport as you can walk everywhere but it does help that you can find transport to everywhere across London to and from the centre. read more
