A question about Durham (or Northern England in general).Watch
Just to clear up the record, Klute was voted the second worst nightclub in Europe. The worst was some place in Poland, but it burnt down, so now Klute is officially the worst. But it rocks !
Oh, by the way, no first years actually get to live in the castle. You're essentially dumped in bedsits nearby. Also, university college has a brutally high applicant-to-place ratio - last year I believe it was 15.7 to 1.
"New Castle" lol
* I'm gonna live in a Castle *
Omg! That's cold. And I'm used to Norwegian temperature. Oki, so it can get -20 C in the winter, but I'm used to 20-30 degrees during the summer!
As to their being areas of poverty, damn straight there are but so what? You go to university to experience new things, and you cant avoid poor ppl for your entire life. Just because they are less fortunate doesnt mean they will attack you with a big stick on a night out.
As for those nights out, well yes durham is rather space on the club side of things, however Newcastle is only down the road and late night trains run. And those geordies are always partying, and drinking, great fun, especially the baja beach club.
Final word, there is an all u can eat chinese buffet, and they do student specials. Convinced its a great place? Bring a scarf.
