It’s London Baby

London London

As a busy student at the end of the degree it’s hard to leave a house and have a time out.

There are so many things to do in London and so many reasons why this city is so great.

I found an amazing list, created by students –101 reasons you need to live in London once – from StudentBeans I decided to share some of them and add some of my own:

When you understand the tube map you’ll realise how painfully simple it is

Everyone knows someone who lives there

– The Natural History Museum is totally free

As is the Science Museum

And the British Musem

And the Tate

And the Tate Modern

OK, naming all of them would probably be cheating – but there are a whole world of free galleries and museums

There are 4500 pubs & bars

Sitting in the park on a summer’s day

– It’s one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world

– Whatever type of food you want, you’ll find it

Your commute will take you past some of the most famous landmarks in the world

– Markets. So many markets

– Every band who tours plays in London

You can just hop on a train to Paris when you get bored

– You can never be bored with TimeOut telling you what to do

Nightbuses. You can always get home thanks to nightbuses

Stunning views from The Shard, The London Eye and Primrose Hill and Cable car

– You can always drink without worrying about how you’re going to get home. NO ONE drives

– When you watch the Apprentice you’ll be able to recognise everywhere they go

– Warehouse parties where no one looks twice if you enter wearing a horse’s head

You’re always going to meet someone who is stranger than you

Free gigs

Sample sales

Vintage markets

Boris bikes

– Musicals

Fringe theatre/ performance art

– When you live here, you can do all the tourist things during off-peak times

– There’s always a new street, a new park , a new pub to discover

Love hipsters? East London is your Mecca

– There are outdoor swimming pools all over the city

You can go out on any night of the week

– There is going to be a cat cafe in Tower Hamlets


– There is always a piece of street art few feet away from you

– day London walks and tours, night London walks and tours – always something new to discover

– children aren’t bored in here

– quarter of the Premier League clubs are from London

– Cinemas – secret cinema, silent cinema, rooftop cinema, hottub cinema, summer screening cinema, 2for1 cinema …

– fashion shows

– museum nights, Open London

– festivals in the park

– coffee, more coffee and even more coffee

– Notting Hill Carnival

– fancy visit a Palace or a Dungeon?

– ride in a driver’s seat on the DLR

I think this list could go on and on …
