    Depends what you're looking for. I did undergrad in London and am now a postgrad in Southampton. Southampton feels very provincial in contrast, and the people look like misshapen potatoes. I'm sure there are multiple options for very cheap drinks but it's not exactly a quality night out destination. However if you're not particularly discerning then you can get smashed and pull a potato.

    I have got an offer from king’s college London as well so I can’t decide between London and Southampton. How was london compared to Southampton?

    London is a lot more diverse, with pretty much any nightlife you can imagine. However it's definitely not cheap, so you need to be prepared (or rich!)

    There are a lot of places to go on a night out and they’re cheaper than London but London will of course have more and better places to go, we have an oceana, switch, a big set of smaller clubs in a place called Bedford Place and the infamous Jesters next to Sobar. A lot of pubs around, including the Hobbit. It’s great for the size of the city but it doesn’t compare to the London clubs
