Eating Out
You’ll literally be spoiled for choice when it comes eating out in the capital. All of our London student accommodation is within easy reach of foodie hotspots like Shoreditch, Brick Lane and Camden Town. From burgers to bhajis; paella to pad thai, there’s something to treat all taste buds, with many cafés and restaurants offering great deals for students. Whether it’s a lazy lunch with friends or posh dining with your parents, all occasions are catered for!
Sporting Spotlights
If you’re into sports you’re in for a treat because London plays host to some of the country’s biggest annual sporting events. With Premier League football teams like Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur you’ll never be short of a footie fixture to enjoy. If rugby’s your game, there are a number of clubs throughout the city. And the 2012 Olympic legacy lives on, with the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park being one of the most notable sites near our student homes.
Culture Corners
From larger-than-life landmarks like the London Eye, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, to history-steeped open spaces like Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, and Hyde Park, London is a cultural extravaganza. The O2 Arena regularly hosts some of the biggest names in music and comedy. If that’s not enough, you’ll find theatres, cinemas, museums, zoos and much more throughout the city. And it’s all easily accessible thanks to our cleverly located student flats.
Evening Entertainment
What better way to relax after a hard day’s studying than a night on the town? The only problem might be deciding which of London’s numerous pubs, clubs, bars and brassieres to choose. You’ll find a seemingly-endless variety of nightspots all easy to get to from your new home. Venture out on any night and you’re likely to find: gastro pubs, light-up dance floors, Babylonian-inspired bars, and clubs-come-art galleries to name just a few.

Around you

Getting Around
Being in the heart of the city means that there are numerous travel options available. The famous red buses are a cheap way to see the city, and run throughout the night. If you miss the bus, there are always the train, taxi or tube services to get you around. And if you want to beat the traffic, why not hire an eco-friendly ‘Boris bike’ and really get to know your new home city?
Health and Wellbeing
All our London student accommodation is only a short distance from local pharmacies, opticians and NHS walk-in centres. Equally as accessible are the local universities which all offer health, welfare and financial support for students. Nationally-renowned hospitals like Great Ormond Street and St Thomas’ are only a short journey from many of our student homes. And if you need help finding a local doctor or dentist, our property teams will happily point you in the right direction.
Amenities
You’ll find all the local amenities conveniently located around your new student home. You can take your pick of supermarkets from Tesco, Marks & Spencer, Waitrose, Sainsbury’s and many more. A short walk from our flats will lead you to other useful amenities, including: high street banks, post offices, Bureaus de change, newsagents, drycleaners, hairdressers and takeaways. To get to them you can take advantage of the bus stops, tube stations and taxi rank that are conveniently close by.
High Street Highlights
For fashion fiends London’s high street shopping can’t be beaten. Many of the world’s top brands have outlets here, with prices and ranges to suit all budgets and tastes. If fashion’s not your thing, why not pop into Harvey Nichols for lunch before hitting the shops? Bookworms will love Foyles, which boasts the largest range of books in the UK. Or you could even treat your new student flat to some tasteful homeware from Liberty or John Lewis.
