Top 5 One Day Destinations
by Nina Christopoulou
Student life in London can be overwhelming, moody or simply too stressful. While London has a lot to offer, a complete change of scenery can help release that student-life stress. Time is of the essence though, that’s why we gathered the Top 5 One Day Destinations for you:
A 30 minute train ride away, the incredible Windsor castle will amaze you both on sunny and not-so-sunny days (and London has too many of the latter). If you do choose a sunny day though, don’t forget to pay a visit to the Savill Garden before grabbing a pint at the Duchess of Cambridge (and yes, that is an obvious name for a pub).

For those rare sunny days (getting a little repetitive, I know) Brighton would be the way to go. An amazing view of the sea, the world’s oldest aquarium and the best fish and chips around at Bardsley’s. And for the thrill enthusiasts the Brighton Pier Rides have a variety to suit everyone’s needs.

Whether you are the museum type, or the endless brunch kind of person you are bound to enjoy yourself in Bath. The Roman baths are undoubtedly the city’s most beautiful attraction, but there are many more things to see! From the Fashion Museum and Victoria Art Gallery to the Pulteney Bridge there are great spots and places to explore.

Cambridge is well known for its universities but there’s more to it than that: like punting on the river Cam or the Fitzwilliam museum. The scenery is idealic to say the least, and the greenery is a sight for sore eyes. Then again, the universities do justify the reputation of the city: King’s College, St. John’s College and Queens’ College are a must to stroll around!

Hands down the most picturesque city I have ever visited. Walking around Oxford gives you this feeling of *I wish I was a student here* and I would advise walking as much as possible through the alleyways, or simply take an official walking tour to get a quick feel for the city. Trinity College is bound to take your breath away, and a personal tip would be to try The Turf Tavern (one of the oldest pubs in Oxford).
