    There's a lot of Asians there, usually studying business studies. Being Asian myself, it is a place to avoid. Unless the University was prestigious.

    I live in Hertfordshire and I would say that the place as a whole is pretty boring. It's good because it's a 20mins train journey into central London, but that's about it. I go out in Watford sometimes but to be honest it is a bit **** (full of chavs and tacky bars) but I don't know, that's just me

    Yeah i know my teacher said its boring and shes kind of a party addict. But coaches take you london for a reasonable price which is what i will most likely be doing. Not following what you mean tacky bars lol, explain =)

    Well in Watford there are only 2 main clubs (Oceana and Area which are quite decent on the right night) but everything else I find is pretty dirty, crap music, and Kandi Klub especially is full of chavvy asians. The bouncers also kick you out for anything so you have to be so careful, especially if you're a boy. From experience, you have to be WASTED to have a good night out there. Definitely go to London instead!

    Mehh, I'd hate having to go on the train to London to go out. Because I'd probably end up drunk and pass out. Having to get a train to get back home takes the piss. How do you get around this?

    There are arranged 'party trips' twice a month, where you take a coach to London, go to several bars/clubs and then take the same coach directly home to the uni.

    Drunken train journeys back are quite funny though, you make tons of friends :P I have lots of friends who live in central London, too, so sometimes I stay there. Otherwise if you organise properly, minibuses of around 12 are like £5 each which is pretty decent and cheaper and more reliable than trains.

    Yeah, the drunken train journeys do sound kind of epic thinking about it. Hehe.

    The plan at Herts would be to get the first train back at 6ish from London.

    Thinking about Watford on a night out depresses me just thinking about it.

    Depends which bit of Yorkshire. According to the ever-knowing Wikipedia, in Hull, 'Of the total population 97.7% were white and the largest minority ethnic group was of 749 people who considered themselves to be ethnically Chinese.' Bear in mind that Hull has a population of about 243,000!
