In a few words
"Most students go to Clowns, Jesters and Sobar for clubbing. There's a wide variety of other clubs with a busy scene in the town centre at Bedford place and a few other clubs such as Switch, Oceana, Cafe Parfait and Junk, for example. If clubbing is not your thing, there are loads of pubs around and loads of non-drinking things to do such as the Oxigen trampoline park, Marwell Zoo, visiting Winchester or the Isle of Wight or walking in the New Forest or around the city's many parks."
