About London

Summer is an excellent time to explore London! When you aren’t busy studying you will be out exploring the many sights and sounds of the city.  A truly multicultural and diverse city, London offers many new experiences– stroll along the Southbank of the river Thames, eat a curry on the famous Brick Lane and see Shakespeare at the Globe Theatre! There is a whole range of incredible student discounts on offer making London much easier to access on a student budget.

By studying in London during June or July you have the chance to experience many festivals and activities available only during these summer months. Below is a short list of things that you may want to explore during your free time:

  • Annual Open Garden Squares weekend: More than 200 gardens, varying from traditional to rooftop varieties, open their gates to visitors during this event.
  • Somerset House Summer Series: Live music series offering an open-air festival feeling in the heart of London and a beautiful setting for concerts.
  • Sunset Safari at the London Zoo!
