"There are many cheesy night clubs which provide much entertainment. Nightlife is also cheap in comparison to other places."
"College bar crawls, clubs, the ever attractive Klute (worst club in Europe), and a ton of eateries for a small town."
"We have the worst nightclub in Europe."
"One word: Klute. But jokes aside, there's more than Europe's worst nightclub to revel in at Durham. Lloyd's Wednesdays and Loveshack are also brilliant ways to take off some stress in the middle of the week. Durham has a few more clubs like Jimmy A's and Fabios that guarantee there's something for everyone. Being in the heart of town, close to many of the student accommodations means it's a lot easier to get out and back home safe after a night out. Additionally, there's a whole bunch of pubs that serve alcohol at some of the cheapest prices in the country!"
"Cathedral, castle, lots of beautiful walks and views, lots of cafes and pubs."
"Not much of a party-goer myself, but I gather it's kind of a so-bad-it's-good sort of thing. Sticky floors and cheesy tunes. Cheap alcohol. But I'm a science student, I don't have time for fun."
"Lots of cafes, college bars, the cathedral and castle, rowing on the river."
"Jump 360 (trampoline lounge), rock climbing, cinema etc."
"There are lots of clubs, which are decently priced, and the music's good most of the time. The clubs only play music for certain groups of people. There's also lots of pushing and crowding, which is not pleasant when you're trying to dance."
"A few smaller clubs, which is actually nice because they're less intimidating and you generally know a lot of people. A lot of clubs also put on some pretty decent nights. College bars are also fun and you can go up to Newcastle if you want a really big night as most of the clubs in Durham shut by 2.00 am."
