If you’re heading to uni in London next month, there’s no excuse not to try all of the exciting things that are going on in the capital city all the time. Whether you’re a thrill seeker or just looking for a chilled night on the town, there’s something for everyone. West Londoner Hollie knows more than most students about what our capital city has to offer. Here she gives us a sneak peak of what those new to the city definitely shouldn't miss... 1. Speed boat on the River Thames Location: Embankment Hollie says: “A super-fun experience and awesome way to see more of London if you’re new to the city. There’s also a James Bond themed bit, which makes you feel like you’re in the movie. More exciting than the standard Thames river boat cruise.” 2. Camden Market Location: Camden Hollie says: “One of the most bizarre and quirky places in London. There are so many cool market stalls where you can buy cheap clothes, accessories, books, antiques, artwork and loads more. The food stalls are incredible; you can buy food from almost anywhere in the world. If you’re feeling impulsive there’s also loads of tattoo and piercing studios.” 3. The secret bar at the BFI Location: Southbank Hollie says: “If you love films the BFI is the perfect place to go, with screenings of new and old films all the time in a great London location. There’s a bar and kitchen at the BFI but for a more private experience, there’s a secret cocktail bar hidden behind a bookcase - and you can hire it out for parties!”. 4. The Sky Garden Location: 5 Rood Ln (Near Monument) Hollie says: “The Sky Garden has a really amazing view of London with a several restaurants to eat and drink, and unlike the Shard, it’s free to get in!” 5. Blues Kitchen Location: Shoreditch, Camden, Brixton Hollie says: “A restaurant and bar which does incredible Texan BBQ and Cajun cuisine with music seven nights a week (like soul and swing nights)”. 6. Soho’s Murder Mile Location: Soho
