    In anyone's opinion what is the best UK city for nightlife? Take into consideration that I'm a student and don't want to have to pay ridiculous amounts of money for drinks!

    Any big University town/city is likely to have a good nightlife. However the prices are likely to be more expensive at the weekend - to get the most out of your money you want to go out on weekday 'student' themed nights. There is a bar here in Norwich that on thursday nights offers trebles (as in 3 shots of malibu + coke etc) for £2 - which is very cheap, considereing at some of the clubs and bars here charge nearly £3 for a single on friday and saturday nights.

    But I think Norwich is a very good city for its nightlife - considering the city itself isn't huge, there are tonnes and tonnes of bars and clubs (at least 8 clubs, many many bars) all around the city centre. I haven't been to half of them yet (damn 9am lectures!).

    I think you'll find that in most places - lots of the clubs in Norwich have over 21's on Friday or Saturday nights to deter students from going, plus the fact its more expensive as well. Which is why its much better on weekday nights when its aimed for students - only problem is having to get up at 9am nearly every morning, so i can't go OTT!!

    Hull is very good, even on a Saturday night you can go out with £20 and still get a take away + taxi home .
