Due to restrictions brought on by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the offerings above may not reflect our usual activities, but we continue to offer students a variety of fun and safe activities both online and (where possible) in-person. Some activities may also be subject to change.




In the menus below you'll find links to some of our favourite things to do in London. Find our more on each venue's website, but don't start booking tickets before your program starts! Some experiences will be offered as part of the FIE London Activity Calendar or as a co-curricular activity for one of your classes. For even more ideas of things to see and do, check out TimeOut and Visit London


If applicable, information on COVID-19 safety measures can be found on each venue's website.




There are so many wonderful places to visit just a short trip from London, so you’ll have plenty to see and do whether you’re taking a day trip, weekend break or a longer excursion! Visit our travel page for inspiration on places to go, helpful information on how to get there and a handy pre-travel checklist.

Please be reminded that, in line with the FIE Covid-19 Code, students must avoid all non-essential travel outside of the country in which they are studying.




If you’re joining FIE London for Spring, Fall, or Winter, you will receive an Imperial College Union Associate Membership Card. This gives you access to the union’s social spaces and events and allows you to join many of the 370+ student led clubs, societies and projects. You’ll receive your Associate Membership card during orientation – look out for it in your Welcome Pack.




Please note that Imperial College Union is a separate entity from Imperial College (the university) and therefore, your Associate Membership Card does not grant access to all buildings on the university campus. For example, only students enrolled at Imperial College can access the university libraries. Further details about the benefits and limitations of Associate Membership is available here.
