Student nights out in and around Wembley


January?s over and what better way to celebrate the end of a long month than with a night out? And even though you?ve been living here for a few months, there are probably still places that you?ve not yet visited. So no matter what kind of night you?re looking for, you?re sure to find it right on your doorstep in Wembley?

Dance the night away
Dig out your dancing shoes and jump in a taxi with your friends and head to the close by Camden, where you?ll find some of the most renowned venues and clubs in the City. Boogie all night long to live music and DJs playing everything from hip hop, R&B, and dance to old school classics, pop and disco. A few places to try: Proud Camden, The Camden Assembly, EGG London.

Dinner for two
If you?ve got a romantic date on the cards then why not treat the lucky someone to dinner in Wembley. There?s lots of local and independent Chinese, Indian or Italian restaurants in the area to choose from. Or meet your date at the London Designer Outlet where you?ll be spoilt for choice with over 20 restaurants and coffee shops. Start the night with a cheeky Nando?s, followed by cocktails in TGI Fridays – you can even end the night with a trip to the 9 screen cinema!

Scrumptious cocktails
Going out with the girls? Celebrating a birthday? Fancy a cocktail? Whatever the reason, make a night of it with some delicious cocktails. Enjoy a classic such as a Long Island Ice Tea or indulge in a fruity number like the Mango Collins at Las Iguanas at the London Designer Outlet. What?s more, get there in time for happy and you can take advantage of their 2 for 1 offer!

A drink down the local
Sometimes it?s nice to grab a drink or bite to eat with your friends, without the pressure of dressing up and making a fuss. So, chuck your hoody on and head down to some of the local pubs for some tasty food, sports on the big screen and of course some special offers! A few places to try: The Liquor Station, The Torch, Watkins Folly (Fridays are student night)!

And for the nights you want to stay in – or for the day after a night out, how about a takeaway? You can enjoy the delicious taste of hot served food without lifting a finger. Wok N Roe is a local favourite, serving Chinese and fish and chips ? the only downside is that it?s collection only. So if you don?t fancy going out, how about a freshly cooked pizza served straight to your door from Dominos or Pizza Hut.

3 Fun things for students to do in Wembley


Life at University isn?t all about knuckling down to hard work (ok, it is a little bit about that, but bear with us).? Sometimes, a break from your studies is required, and that?s when it comes in really handy to have the delights of London right on your student accommodation doorstep.

Host Wembley is situated minutes away from Wembley Park Underground Station, which is served by both the Jubilee and the Metropolitan Lines (just 17 minutes to London Bakerloo). ?So, with that in mind, here are our top three things to do in or around Wembley when you want a little time off from your studies.

  1. When you?re studying, it?s easy to forget that some of London?s most amazing tourist attractions are also well worth visiting as a resident. Madam Tussaud?s Wax Works are just such an example.? This internationally famous visitor attraction moved to its present site in Marylebone Road in 1884, and has been entertaining Londoners and visitor ever since.? Where else in the world can you see the characters from Star Wars standing alongside Bollywood greats and The English Royal family?
  2. A few minutes walk away from your Host student accommodation lives the iconic Wembley Arena. Re-opened in 2006 following a ?35 million refurbishment including a new restaurant, bars and food outlets, air conditioning, new seating, as well as an impressive new piazza complete with ‘dancing fountain’, the world-famous indoor music venue has capacity for 12,750 and has a packed programme of top entertainment throughout 2015.
  3. It?s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of London, and sometimes it?s necessary to take a little quiet time out. The Neasden?Temple in Wembley?provides the perfect opportunity for this.?The temple, the first traditional Hindu Mandir one to be built outside of India, was constructed from two thousand tons of Italian marble and 3,000 tons of Bulgarian limestone; shipped out to India to be carved by 1000 craftsmen before being brought back to London where they were assembled like a 26,000-piece three-dimensional jigsaw. It?s a breath-taking architectural gem that has quickly become one of London’s must-see attractions.?It?s open 9am to 6pm daily, and visitors from all (or no) religions are welcome.
    Dress code: no revealing or short clothes.

There?s a whole lot more to Wembley than the above, of course, but we hope we?ve given you a little taste of inspiration for what your London student experience has to offer.
