“A Level results” are out, university places have been accepted and now its time for the big move.
For many university students in London it is their first time living in the Capital. It can initially be quite a daunting experience moving to a new area, not knowing the best place to pick up your morning coffee, or where to grab a bite to eat after a long day in the library, so we have compiled a list of the best go-to student places in SW1.
Get your morning caffeine fix or wake me up juice at Joe and the Juice on the King’s Road. Choose from an aromatic coffee or a fresh fruit juice. It is a trendy spot with a laid back vibe, a place to chill in the centre of hectic city. You can also pick up one of their delicious sandwich’s to go for you’re lunch if you have a busy day of classes ahead.
After a busy day in the library or in class you will need to wind down. Head to Pimlico 11 for some light bites; share a charcuterie board with friends while enjoying glass of wine and a catch up in this relaxed local eatery and bar.
If you are in the mood for a dance then Embargo 59 is the place for you. It hosts Contraband, the high-end student night on Wednesdays, which it is the place to go for the most delectable rum infused cocktails and punches for a night of hedonism.
Before you know it the weekend has arrived which is when you can really get out and explore. Why not start off your weekend with a delicious and reasonably priced brunch at Pimlico Fresh. From sweetened French toast with fresh cream and caramelised bananas to baked eggs, it’s delicious and a great way to start the day.
A cultural must see is the Saatchi Gallery; a fantastic collection of contemporary art, and what’s more, it’s free. You can definitely while away a few hours looking at their quirky collections, such as the Festival des Métiers showcasing some of Hermès most famous pieces, to a room of paintings of the faces of the world’s most famous dictators in their youth.
In no time you will have found your feet and be adding to this list of the top student hang outs in and around SW1.
