"Four major clubs that put on a student night per week. Not much in the way of cheap pubs or other places to go."
"Every night is catered for by a different club in town. There are loads of bars and pubs to choose from if that's not your thing."
"Very good mix of events. Sometimes I prefer clubbing, other times I would like to sit and watch some bands at the Purple Turtle, the Oakford Social Club or at Sub89, which suits me very well!"
"There's a large high street and the Oracle shopping centre for all your shopping needs! There's also a canal and gardens to walk in as well as a lovely town centre."
"Shopping at the Oracle is great. There are lots of shops and the riverside is ideal for evening meals, with a large variety of restaurants."
"Night clubs, cinema, shopping, lots of restaurants."
"Lots of good bars and some decent clubs, though some are a lot more expensive than others. Some offer deals to university students such as cheaper entry."
"Very samey clubs. Good for a while but the bars are more appealing now that we've gotten used to the town."
"There are several different night clubs with student-price drinks as well as many great bars and cocktail places. There is also a great variety of places to eat."
"Loads of clubs that locals and students go to. There are also alternative nights, which people go to depending on what music they like."
