London is huge you could live your whole life here and not know all its secrets. To leave the house/ flat/ halls is to be bombarded with images, with people, with atmosphere, with history. You can be a tourist, spectator, and student; pick and choose, take a good look around; London has so much to offer. At the same time as this being a bonus; that you can sculpt your own life out of the chaos; find your niche, it can also be a bit of a nightmare. .
