One of the world's greatest intellectual capitals, London, boasts a history of historical and cultural icons. Culturally the city is an international center for film, music, sport, nightlife, theater, fashion and art.
London's many districts, each with their own distinctive character, provide opportunities for an extraordinary range of social and cultural experiences. Covent Garden, South Bank, Soho, and Westminster are all within easy reach of the University. Sites to visit around London include the London Eye, National Gallery, Hyde Park, Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, and Globe Theater. Even closer to the campus, students will find a wide variety of places of interest, shopping areas, bars and restaurants, many ideally suited for students on a tight budget. There is so much to do and see in this city, during orientation week students are able to participate in a scavenger hunt throughout the city!
