Culture Hopping in London
London isn’t just the capital of the country for the sake of it. With so much going on you’ll never get bored! The city is brimming with underground talent, fancy bars, cute cafés, and all the shops you could possibly need – and of course, some of the world’s best tourist attractions!
Our residences are in key locations in Zone 1, just a hop, skip and jump away from King’s Cross and Barbican, making it super-easy to get to any of London’s universities or shopping hotspots.
You don’t have to head deep into the heart of London for the best culture spots. English Lit students might want to channel the Victorian school-kid life and check out the lovingly curated Charles Dickens Museum, which is just ten minutes down the road from Depot Point. And any Harry Potter fan should make their dreams of Hogwarts real by visiting Platform 9 ¾ at King’s Cross Station.
Finding coursebooks will never be a problem either – the British Library is only ten minutes away from Depot Point, boasting the most resources of any library on the planet! There are lots of quiet space rooms, ideal as revision spots as long as you don’t get too distracted by the stunning architecture!
Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and get back to nature at Regent’s Park. If you’ve got some energy to burn there are plenty of running routes through the park. Or pull up a blanket and revise in the sunshine.
Just around the corner from Therese House you can access the Barbican Centre which operates as the largest performing arts centre of its kind in Europe. You can enjoy classical and contemporary concerts, watch a performance at the theatre, schedule in a film screening or get lost in one of the many amazing and unique exhibitions on show. For nature-lovers, there is also an incredible greenhouse open only on a Sunday which makes the perfect detox retreat from the hustle and bustle of busy city life.
