Top 5 things to do in London (as a student)

Visit the best museums in the UK

A recent poll on the popular travelling review website, TripAdvisor revealed that London is home to 5 out of 10 of most loved museums in the UK. The National Gallery, The British Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Natural History Museum and The Science Museum are just a few museums you can visit in London for free. The good news is that some of these are within a few minutes’ walk from our college.

Join a famous walk or tour, or take a day trip outside London

If you’re a student at The English Studio, you are lucky enough to benefit from discounted tours and free walks you can join every week. Our past events have included: the Jack the Ripper Tour (which explores one of the most famous murder mysteries in history), The Warner Bros. Studio Tour (where you can see some of the film sets from the Harry Potter film series), and many more.

In addition to walks and tours you can join affordable guided day trips to towns and cities outside of London, to places such as: Oxford, Stonehenge and Bath, Cambridge, etc. All you have to do is pick up a leaflet from our reception and book your place.

Explore Covent Garden

Covent Garden is one of London’s most popular and beautiful places because of its unique restaurants, famous markets and interesting street performances. Covent Garden is just a 10 minute walk from our Holborn College so you can explore it any day with your English Studio friends. Don’t forget to visit Neal’s Yard while you’re there, a lovely little area full of colourful shops and restaurants.

View London from the top

Have you ever seen London from high up? Visit The Shard and you can say you have been up the tallest building in the European Union. If aerial views are your thing but you would rather not pay a pricey entry fee, you can consider The Monument, a Grade 1 listed building which commemorates the Great Fire of London. (Entry tickets are £2 – £4). Alternatively, The Sky Garden, a beautiful restaurant and bar area in Fenchurch Street, offers wonderful views of the city.

Experience East London

If you are a fan of everything alternative, East London is the place to visit. You can find everything from international food to vintage fashion and music and unique street art in East London. Feed the hipster in you and eat in Brick Lane, drink in cool rooftop bars in Hoxton, get your hair cut in Shoreditch or buy an old camera in Old Spitalfields Market and experience what it really means to be an East Londoner.
