    Egham's not too bad, though if you're looking for a town with a great nightlife, I'm afraid you'll be a bit out of luck! Best bet is to go to Windsor or London.

    Though in Egham you got a huge tesco and some great places to eat. Everyone loves Runnymede Chicken, it's cheaper and 100000x better than KFC. You also have Pomodoro which do amazing burgers. There's also Kaspa's, which is a great ice cream parlour.

    Bar 163 is great for quiet drinks or dates, and apparently The Monkey's Forehead is a great student pub.

    Also, I didn't mean Windsor/London as in changing Uni. I just meant to go on a night out, as they're ~fairly close

    That's great info right there! Thank you!
    The quiet, calm and peaceful landscape of Egham is one of the benefits (in my opinion).

    Definitely. Unless you're living in Nightingale Shott, then you gotta deal with idiots screaming outside at all hours of the night....

    But yeah I don't mind chilling in the pub for a few hours, but I'm not into clubbing etc.

    Also another benefit of Egham is that you can get to Thorpe Park in about 20 minutes or less.
