Out on the Town

Homesick international students need look no further than London for music from around the world. There is a large variety of music venues and visiting artists in this metropolis. Admission varies from free for students to £30 on the door, which makes checking listings guide, like Time Out, a good idea before heading out.

Fabric near Farrington tube station is one of the most popular dance clubs in the city, with discounted admission for international students while the Ministry of Sound Club is big on beats and world famous acts like Judge Jules and Timo Mass.

The Venue at the University of London Union (ULU) hosts a renowned Friday club night, with three bars and DJs serving up tunes until 2am (including some students on the decks). With selected drinks priced at £1.80 and regular giveaways, competitions and theme nights, Fridays at ULU are famous for being one of the capital's great student nights.

Soho is good for all-round entertainment in the north, with lots on in nearby Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square. It isn’t all about strip shows, there are some cheap pubs, clubs and restaurants. Street performers put on a good act in Piccadilly Circus and A-list celebrities at world-famous premieres hone in on Leicester Square’s red carpets. For last minute entrance to theatres in London’s West End it is worth asking at the box offices. Unusual highlights include drinking on the decking of the Queen Mary ship anchored on the River Thames a short distance from Embankment tube station and trying an expensive tipple in Vertigo Champagne Bar at Tower 42 (NatWest Tower) overlooking the skyline at sunset.
