In East London I saw few buildings which all are part of Queen Mery university of London campus. There was an engeneering school, art one, law, economics and many more. And each one was different in size and style.

Went here yesterday as part of Open House London Weekend. The organised tour was detailed, lively and interesting. I saw a lot of the rooms and the history of the building was explained well. A truly art deco building, a favourite of mine, and interesting...More

We went to a tv shoot at the Goldsmith's campus. It was clean, people were helpful and friendly and it was overall a lovely place. Easy to find too.

Next to Oxford and Cambridge, London ranks as one of the very best UK universities. It used to consist of a large number of individual colleges, but many have now become independent and award their own degrees (eg The London School of Economics). It was...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and

Skype and staying in touch (14 Replies)
My daughter will be studying abroad next semester at University of London/ Westminster. We are trying to figure out the best way(s) for us to stay in touch. I know calls to and from the US will be expensive. We will use Skype when we are both at our computers and both have internet access. Skype also offers rates to and from landline and mobile phones. Has anyone used Skype for this and is it a reasonable option? Or might she be better off buying a foreign SIM when she arrives? Thanks...More

Use Skype every day in one form or another. Many of my friends/family also use it as they are scattered all over. You can use it to divert to a mobile no. as well, if the person is not at a PC which I find very useful. Could not be without it!

Pistons/Spurs Game 5 (where can I watch it?) (2 Replies)
I'm from Michigan (near Detroit) and will be in London (staying at the University of London) for a few weeks and was wondering how/when/where/etc.. the NBA finals are being shown over there...specifically game 5 (which is this coming Sunday). Thanks.

The place that would almost certainly show it is the Sports Cafe in Haymarket (nearest tube Picadilly Circus) - BUT it closes at midnight on a Sunday (open later during the week) so with the time difference I think you're out of luck. You could always call them (+44 20 7839 8300) to ask if they know of an alternative venue? Here's a link to a site for American Expats in The UK, and if anyone knows where it will be on, someone on there will - used to be free but now costs USD15 for 12...More

Notting Hill vs Fitzrovia (1 Replies)
We are looking at a vacation rental in Notting Hill on Portabello Road between Lancaster Road and Westway (A40). We are also looking at a rental in Fitzrovia area on Ridgmount Street between Chenies Street and Store Street. Seems to be near University of London. Are both of these safe neighborhoods. Fitzrovia seems more central. Thank you!

Both areas are fine and yes you are correct ; Fitzrovia is more central.
