One of the reasons you probably chose to study abroad was to travel, right?! Many students try and tick off as many countries as possible during their time in London, while others choose to explore the city in-depth and stay local. Just remember you may have classes or your internship Monday - Friday from 9 am - 5:00 pm so please don't make travel plans until you after you arrive in London. There are many amazing world heritage sites, museums, theatres, and places of natural beauty you can see without ever leaving London or the UK! 


You’ve chosen to study abroad in London, so don’t forget to see as much of the city as you can! Explore the maritime history of Greenwich, the alternative culture of Camden, and the wildlife in Richmond. This video guide from Visit London and this London area guide by TimeOut are a great introduction to the city’s popular hotspots.
