It is expensive to live in London with rent, food, travel but the opportunities that are present in the city greatly outweigh the costs

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 activities 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 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 your 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.

London is probably the most affected by the cost of living crisis, already being an expensive city. Even without this, eating out, shopping and nights out are super expensive so I can imagine it has only become worse. However, there are some of the best restaurants, clubs and undeniably the best shopping scene in England in London, so if it's feasible its absolutely worth it. Public transport is always reliable, as if one thing if striking you will always be able to get to where you need to be via something else. read more

I feel that the cost of living is high. Eating out is also difficult because very few things are under 15 pounds and are a full meal. So I mostly have to rely on making food at home or carrying my lunch. I haven't been out at night a lot but I went for a play and stepped out with some friends and it felt quite safe. I mostly visit the retail park near my accommodation but most of the times it is possible for me to find affordable options for things that I'm looking for. I like the tube but sometimes I find them an unreliable, I have to make sure I check the train schedule everyday and plan my journeys. Also some of the tubes are really dirty. I wish they would be cleaner. read more

London is an expensive city to be living it, however there is many help out there to students who struggle, such as UAL bursaries etc. The student life is amazing especially nights out with friends and eating out in restaurant s or going art museums .

The cost of living in london is high as expected since it is such an economic hub however I was shocked to find out that the average expense for a one-way trip form zone 2-2/1-2/1-1 was over 3 pounds on average. The underground experience is also unpleasant, with heat in the autumn I'm worried that it will be worse in spring or summer. There are very few lines or stations with cellular data as well, so it will be hard to navigate if you are not familiar with the underground system. Though during the night the city is lively, walking around alone or even with a friend could be shady especially if you are a minority or have a smaller frame. read more

Of course you are going to be able to find a decent night out, but in the experience of my friends and I, we realised that it wasn't going to be the entire uni experience we expected. Cost of living is bad everywhere and obviously London is more expensive than most places. But nobody can afford to live here and somehow we all still do. You'll never be short of something to do, although it might be overwhelming to choose but that'll pass. Public transport is what it is, I haven't had much trouble with it, I suggest catching the bus that way you get to see London as you travel as opposed to being underground and seeing nothing, also the bus is cheaper. read more

London is great....

London is great. The amount of museums, music venues, restaurants, etc. is limitless. Also, my area specifically (Camberwell, Brixton) is very vibrant and full of people from different backgrounds. The worst thing about London for me is pricing and distances between places. That makes you constantly plan your days/weeks and leave no room for spontaneous plans. It's all about meeting for a dinner or a concert or a museum but because I'm from a costal village, I miss going with my friends to see the sunset by the beach and just enjoy our time together. read more

London is notoriously expensive to live in but there are ways of doing it cheap - check TikTok for places to eat cheaply or areas to go to! Nights out are great because you can get home easily but I have also had my phone stolen on a night out so it's a case of being cautious and knowing where to go. read more

Great transport links, brilliant museums and parks around. I’m not a big fan of night life, I’m a bit of an old soul and enjoy reading and museum trips - for which this was an ideal location.

Im definitely not the best person to develop on this, so I'll keep it short: - Terrible cost of living right now. - Pubs are nice for eating/drinking out - I don't like raves but I've heard that London has good night life. - I'm not a shopping person. Go to camden, brixton or oxford circus if you are, though. - Expensive but unbelievably efficient public transport (with exceptions, i.e cost of living crisis = strikes) read more

Living in Zone 1...

Living in Zone 1 London was very convenient as I was within walking/short distance of many London landmarks. There is always something to do in London with so many events happening everyday so one is never bored! The hopper bus fare was great at reducing the price of travel. But the tubes were not reliable due to the many strikes that occured this year which made travelling home difficult. Central London features a lot of high end, designer stores so grocery shopping for essentials is a hassle because one has to travel out to find a high street with cheap stores. Although, the Too Good To Go app was very handy in getting good food at reduced prices and allows one to try different cafes and restaurants and cuisines at low prices. read more

It’s so expensive, if you’re not receiving financial support from home, your finances will overwhelm you. I’m slightly bias with the nights out because I don’t enjoy that kind of thing but even my friends that do say it’s better in other cities. Once you’re past the starstruck dream of being in “london” you realise you’re alone in a big city, no time to explore it, whilst barely being able to afford everything you need to buy. Working alongside some courses is very doable, I work alongside the physics course and I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s too hard. If I didn’t have to work I believe my grades would be significantly higher in all subjects. read more

As long as you live near a Tube station, transport is convenient. Stratford being delegated as Zone 2-3 instead of Zone 3 helps with daily costs. There is also a bus station nearby, which also includes buses to specific airports. I would be wary wandering around in darker/less populated areas at night, but so far I’ve never personally witnessed anything dangerous happen yet. read more
