I've only seen Downing College, Cambridge.. but the moment I saw it I fell in love with it. *dreamy sigh*.. its a beautiful place.

Sadly, I wasn't good enough to get a place. But I'll be at Durham instead.

Bangor is one of them them lovely places the views of Snowdonia are fantastic and Manai bridge designed by Telford is sheer genius. However I would probably be bored to death if I had to live there. At this point I shall refrain from making the obvious statement regarding a certain type of faming in Wales begenning with S.

Apparently Stirling has the most beautiful campus in Europe, lots of rolling greenery, and its own golf course and castle, as well as views of Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument. Unfortunatly I applied, but didn't go to the open day.
St Andrews is beautiful, but I think Cardiff is also overlooked. Park Place is all large Victorian houses, and opposite is all massive white builidings that look like Bucks Palace (sorry, wouldn't know how to describe them architecturally!).

UCL is really nice - the green squares of Bloomsbury are very pretty and its right next to Regent's park.

As for UCL its self, the main building is breath-taking, and is reminiscent of the National Gallery and the Cruciform building which you either love or hate is a prime example of Victorian architecture.

I heard a quote about Bloomsbury, can't remember where from which i liked - "they lived in squares and loved in triangles"

Just out of interest what is the polution levels of the River Irwell in Salford? I will be shocked if its not the most polluted river in the UK (apart from the Thames).
