Although many people look forward to spending time away from London during reading week, many students stick around for the break. That doesn’t mean a boring week spent in the dorm, though! London has plenty of fun options on offer. Here’s a quick list of some great London activities for the break.
Watch a Game
If you’re spending time in London over the break, it is a great chance to show some school spirit. You may be too busy to go see a game during a school week, but reading week is a great time to support the Mustangs. The hockey and volleyball teams are playing at home in the upcoming week; you can find details here.
Go on a Food Tour
London has a great food culture, and reading week is a great time to get out and experience it. This is a great chance to go out to that one place you’ve had your eye on for a while, or go searching for someplace entirely new. The best part is that London has so many options, that you can make a food tour that is scheduled just to your tastes. This website is a great place start planning your personal food tour.
Game Night with Friends
London is full of fun places to spend time with friends, especially if you’re the competitive type. Places like the Rec Room and Palasad are ideal for hanging out and having fun. For more laid-back vibes, little places like Chil and Carboard Cafe are nice places to spend an afternoon. Whatever you choose, be sure to bring one or two friends along with you!
Hit the Trails
London is known for its natural beauty- It’s called the forest city for a reason, so why not go take a look at what it has to offer? Western students may already know about the trails near campus, like by the Thames on main campus, and in Medway Forest behind Brescia. However, reading week is a great time to explore more of London’s trails. You can find one that piques your interest here.
Whatever you do and wherever you are this reading week, the BUCSC wishes you all the best!
