And if you’re wondering what to do when you’re there, we’ve got it all planned out with six things for you to do in London for less.

    Discover one-of-a-kind finds at a Brick Lane Market

    If you’re strapped for cash but are on the hunt for something quirky to liven up your uni room, then Brick Lane Market is the place for you. Located in London’s buzzing East End, the bustling markets sell everything from retro furniture and vintage jewellery, to music, crafts and mouth-watering street food. The market takes place every Sunday so we recommend heading down on one of our coaches the day before to really make a weekend of it.

    Catch a gig in Camden

    If you and your mates love good music, there’s nowhere better than North London’s Roundhouse. Oozing with Camden charm, the Roundhouse hosts a staggering variety of up-and-coming acts, as well as world famous faces. Did you know Pink Floyd, Madness, Blur and Amy Winehouse have all previously performed there so it’s safe to say you can expect a pretty epic evening, even on the cheap.

    Indulge in sensational street food

    If you love food, there’s no way you can afford not to go to London’s Borough Market! Check out Brindisa for heavenly chorizo, pepper and rocket rolls, and Maria’s Market Cafe for the best hangover food you could wish for (… so we’ve been told).

    Party under the moonlight

    We know the SU is sure to be holding a load of Halloween events, but if you fancy seeing in the spookiest night of the year in the capital, then grab your ghouls and head to London’s The Roof Gardens Spooktacular. Expect a nightclub reminiscent of the Thriller music video and an eerily transformed garden with a barbecue to keep hungry spirits at bay. Plus, if you arrive before 9pm, you’ll be treated to a free twisted tipple cocktail. Nice!
