London boasts the best nightlife of any place I've ever lived in or been to. Whether you fancy going to the pub/a bar/a club, you can guarantee that London won't leave you disappointed. Food here is great - again, there is essentially an unlimited selection of restaurants to choose from if you fancy eating out. Supermarkets are always in close proximity, however most of them are small due to being located centrally so the choice can sometimes be limited (not really an issue). Shopping for anything else is easy, whether it be for clothes, university resources, things for the house etc... - all you need to do is head towards zone 1. London, albeit expensive, is good value for money in my opinion. I appreciate that there are other places in the UK where you are able to get that city experience for less, but for me it's a case of you get what you pay for. I personally feel that it's a shame that many students overlook London because they've heard it's too expensive or doesn't allow for a good student experience.
