    Hey,

    I'm making my final uni decisions for 2012 entry and don't know whether to pick St Andrews or Durham. I love them both equally academically and socially, but don't know which one has a better gay scene. I know they're both quite quiet places so I am really unsure. I'm not making my final decision on which has a more liberal scene but it is a contributing factor for me...!

    Can anyone offer me some advice please?

    Thank you!

    You're going to spend 99.9% of your time surrounded by other students which will typically be quite liberal and open minded anyway, so I wouldn't worry about it too much. I can't comment on St Andrews but if you want a more lively time in Durham you can always go to Newcastle for a night out which is somewhat nearby and has a raging bumming scene.

    I don't think there are as many good gay bars in St Andrews and a city near by. At least in Durham you can get to one in half an hour or so by hopping on a train to Newcastle (15min train journey away)
