One of the most quirky things you can do in London - watch a criminal trial in one of the most historic courthouses in the UK. See judges, wigs, & case summaries. Jump from trial to trial as you wish.
Cons: You can't take electronics or bags (including mobile phones). However, there is a Toni and Guy across the street that holds personal possessions for £1 each and they are completely trustwort...
One of the most unique finds in London. It's basically a house of the most eclectic museum-worthy collections. No sterile museum-feel here. It's corny, but you will feel "at one" with the art.
Cons: It's highly suggested to go to this museum with a guide. Everything from the architecture to the organisation has meaning. Every piece has a fascinating history. Find an art historian friend and go!
Brilliant, dry, British humour. Hugely quotable, something for every occasion. Situations relatable, character inner-thoughts even more so! Mitchell/ Webb comedy duo at their best! London setting plus
Cons: Not the easiest series to just jump into - starting from the beginning is highly recommended.
Small enough to walk, diverse areas of city and parks, the Isis River, central University area on Broad St is very convenient for tourists, amazing bookshops, architecture, and most of all, pubs!
Cons: Admittedly, not as charming as Cambridge, Cornmarket is an eyesore, there are some dodgy areas, too many chain shops and restaurants, Colleges can be difficult to visit for tourists.
Hugely applicable field for employment in communications, information, social networks. Very flexible field for a range of interdepartmental subjects, from economics to paleopathology.
Cons: The economic crisis suggests that we should all get MBAs instead. Also, the stereotype of anthropology being an unknown study of everything is uninspired.
Solid networking opportunities, diverse community, incomparable location, international campuses, ideal for developing independent characters.
Cons: May not be worth the price, not enough financial aid, some classes are too large, professor contact rare, most classes taught by TAs, the library can be intimidating, high social adjustment curve.
Fantastic all-around workout, low-impact on knees, strong team spirit, long sport heritage. Rowers have the largest power output of all athletes.
Cons: Hugely dependent on weather, river conditions, and the possibility of getting enough people together to fill a boat. And onesies are not sexy.
