London Life

London Life

All the tips and tricks you need to make the most out of living in London.

Living in the capital city of course has its perks, with endless activities and places open into the early hours, there’s always something to do. However, living in such a big and busy city can also have its problems, such as easily getting lost or not knowing the best route to get from A to B.

It’s especially difficult for a new student who isn’t used to the area and doesn’t know the best places to go. That’s why our London Life category aims to help all new or returning Londoners become reacquainted with such a bustling city. On this page, we give details of up and coming events in London, as well as the best places to eat, drink or even watch the football.

At The Journal we understand how difficult it is to get used to student life and a new city, especially if that city is as big as London. That’s why we aim to help make your student experience as straightforward and enjoyable as possible. We can provide the top events for students to attend, from gallery openings to nights out. We also reach out to experts to provide further insight and opinion.

On this page you can find useful content such as places to eat breakfast, secret galleries, the best bookshops and the latest events. If you browse this page, you’re bound to find a hidden gem in the country’s capital.

As well as making life in London as fun as possible, at The Journal we also have other categories that help with other aspects of your student life. Such as Study, Careers & Finance, Accommodation and News & Events.
