With the campus in the lovely Islington, north London, you are right on the doorstep of so many great things here. The Kings Head Pub and Theatre has some of the best new shows in the city, the Union Chapel has amazing gigs in an incredible atmosphere. Camden Passage is nearby too, with lots of interesting things for your flat. Camden is of course a short walk away, and you can get down into east London on the Overground easily. I had such an amazing time living in London, really the best city in the world!
