Where to live
London boasts a number of neighbourhoods, each with a different culture, feel and personality. Popular areas close to South Kensington include Knightsbridge, Earl’s Court, Shepherd’s Bush, White City, Fulham, Putney, Clapham Junction and Battersea.
Imperial’s location guide offers useful advice on different areas of London including video summaries, transport links and average rent per week.
I chose to live in Shoreditch, East London. I was drawn to the area for its reputation in arts and culture. I have enjoyed exploring – especially the many coffee shops, restaurants, and markets. Even though it’s not as close to South Kensington as some other popular student areas (White City, Earl’s Court, Clapham Junction), my commute to campus was a quick 35-minutes on the Northern and Piccadilly lines – and the location is close to the City and Canary Wharf, which made interviews and off-campus events easily accessible.
