Studying in London

London has no parallel as an international city in which to live and study. Regent’s location at the heart of the UK capital puts you within easy reach of the world-class cultural, educational and leisure facilities that make London the top destination for visitors across the world.

London has always attracted people from across the globe. More than 300 languages are spoken throughout the city, which is home to a hugely diverse population. It is also a great place to be young – more than a quarter of the people who live here are under 25 and London has the highest concentration of university students in Europe.

Around the campuses

London is famed for its green space, and Regentʼs Park – one of the cityʼs eight royal parks – is right on your doorstep. From here, you can walk to London Zoo, rub shoulders with the waxworks at Madame Tussauds,
explore the markets and cafés of Camden, browse the up-market shops in Marylebone Village or stroll down to busy Oxford Street.

Central London attractions

As well as enjoying your immediate surroundings, you will be ideally placed to explore all that London has to offer.

Both our Regentʼs Park and Marylebone campuses are close to Baker Street Underground station with its many Tube lines, so you will be no more than 20 minutes away from most of Londonʼs main attractions.

The cityʼs shops, theatres, galleries, nightlife and sports venues are all within easy reach. 

With hundreds of cinemas and theatres, including the world-famous West End theatres and the National Theatre on the South Bank, you will have plenty of live and on-screen entertainment to choose from.

Regentʼs is just a few stops on the Underground from the major sporting and music venues of the O2, Wembley
Stadium and Wembley Arena.

London is also a great place for street markets and open-air events. Around 250 festivals take place in the capital
each year, including Europeʼs biggest street festival, the Notting Hill Carnival.

London as your classroom

London is a wonderfully inspiring place in which to study. You will be surrounded by world-class architecture, museums, galleries and many other venues that offer endless opportunities for learning and research. London is home to hundreds of world-class museums, such as the British Museum, Natural History Museum, the V&A and the Design Museum.

There are more than 800 art galleries, including the major collections at Tate BritainTate Modern and the National Gallery. The British Library, with its unique resources, is a short bus or Tube ride from either campus.
