Learners of the World, Gather: Here Are Two Places in London You Should Never Miss

Busy London street

In London, there is so much to see, do and experience. From pubs to museums all the way to free concerts, there is something for everyone, including students who are currently pursuing further education.

The capital is filled with so many available options — libraries, low-cost apparel outlets, cheap public transportation, and second-hand book stores — that any student living there will be able to find what they want and need.

Even those looking for affordable accommodation in London will have an easy time finding one. Still, part of being a student entails having an enjoyable time. Here are two places every student should visit while in London:

1. The British Museum

You might be tempted to overlook this as just another place for history enthusiasts, but do not let your assumptions get you. The British Museum holds some of the world’s finest collections of antiques. In fact, the museum has about 13 million artifacts from different time periods of history.

Some of the more famous exhibits to look out for are the Elgin Marbles from the Parthenon in Athens, the Rosetta Stone, and the colossal bust of Ramses II.

2. Speakers Corner

Located in Hyde Park, the Speakers Corner is a place where anyone can stand up on a chair and air their views to the public openly (as long as they obey the law).

Students can come here to listen to talks, discussion and debates on different ideas and learn how to present their ideas in a succinct and concise manner. Famous names in history such as Karl Marx and George Orwell was known to patronise the Speakers Corner.

London has a lot to offer anyone. Visiting the right places will not only give you a good time, but also enrich your memories for a long time to come.
