Student Perspective: Top UK destinations to visit

International students studying in the UK are very fortunate to have access to a multitude of great places that they can visit during their stay. This is especially true for our students at ELC Brighton who are lucky enough to in close proximity to many fabulous towns, cities and attraction. At our weekly conversation club we took the chance to find out the places our students like the most!

The capital city in England is London and it is no surprise that two of the students we spoke to chose London as their favourite destination to visit.

Hartmut from Germany actually lived in London for almost 2 years, he loved being able to visit such great museums and exhibitions. Another reason he cited as to why London is so great is the fact that London is a huge world city but is surrounded by lovely villages that are easily accessible. He also added “I find the people very welcoming and it was a lovely place to live”

Sabrina, a teacher and leader of a group from San Marino also chose London. She finds London to be a young vibrant city in which you can do almost anything you can think of, meaning everyone will find something they enjoy! Sabrina also commented “It is amazing that all these wonderful museums and art galleries are free to enter!” Furthermore she finds London to an easy city to navigate around thanks to lots of clear and simple signs.

Cristian from Columbia also likes London but he has chosen Canterbury as his favourite place! He said that the views around Canterbury were amazing and allowed him to some incredible photos. He also thought that Leeds castle with its moat was a spectacular attraction!
