King's College London, University of London
How would you rate your university towns night life?
7.7 / 10
(based on ratings in 2016)
"There is a gastropub or a Wetherspoons on almost every corner. Clubs can be quite expensive to go to on the weekends but so is pretty much everything in London. The clubs outside of Zone 1 tend to be cheaper and stay open for longer."
"The Strand campus is very close to Soho and Leicester Square, meaning you are only a 10- or 15-minute walk away from central London nightlife. There are also many reasonably priced pubs on the Strand and in the surrounding areas, as well as MANY cafés and places to eat. The Strand campus is also right in the middle of London's cultural hub, right in the middle of Theatreland, and only walking distance from some of the most popular art galleries and tourist attractions in London such as Somerset House, Trafalgar Square, the London Eye/Southbank and the National Gallery."
"I'm not much of a night person but there's a theatre, cinema halls, casinos, restaurants and bowling etc all less than a 15-minute walk from my halls."
"The students' union is too small for a decent nightlife and not as cheap as many students' unions in other universities. There are plenty of pubs around but are again too expensive most of the time. There are lots of activities to do throughout the year such as Winter Wonderland at Christmas time."
"There are pubs on every corner and all types of clubs covering a variety of music genres. There are gyms hosting a huge variety of sports and some classes such as silk rope classes where you can practise your acrobatics and core strength. There is something for everyone."
"There are clubs, bars and pubs all over that cater to all sorts of music genres. There is an array of amazing LGBTQ bars, clubs and pubs as well. Everyone from all backgrounds is catered for."
"It's full of Irish and characteristic pubs and bars. It's a nice area since it's characterised by the new buildings built for the Olympic games in 2012 and is really close to Westfield, one of the most beautiful shopping centres in London."
"There are plenty of ways to get involved on campus and the fact that the uni is in central London sort of speaks for itself."
"Clubbing is the main nighttime activity and there are always events to suit different tastes. However, there are also great local pubs and bars that are more popular with older students."
"I went to Camden, which was really good for nights out and easy to get back with the night tube and night buses. I always feel safe in Camden."
"Everything. Clubs, pubs, restaurants, museums, plays and more."
"You can find anything in London. There's dining ranging from Michelin star restaurants to street food as well as galleries and museums and plenty of amazing people to meet."
"There's a whole spectrum of events and attractions."
"Nearly anything you can think of."
"Basically everything you want to do, short of going on safari."
"It is hard to get around in London as clubs are situated in many different places. However, I've enjoyed going to bars and clubs."
"Anything you might want is probably here. It's London!"
"There are great clubs of course, you can find something for everyone but it's expensive and I was surprised by how relatively early a lot of bars seem to close. Most shut at 12.00 pm with a few at 2.00 am and clubs are generally more popular."
"London is full of things to do. You're never stuck to find anything."
"London is the best place for culture. There are many museums and historic sites, not to mention great restaurants and bars."
