Are you getting fed up of doing all that revision at home? Would a change of scene liven up those hours spent with your books? Here are some great places in London you can head to if you’d like to shake up your revision schedule:
Google Campus in Shoreditch is a great place to go if you’d like a break from all that revision at home. There are loads of other students and young entrepreneurs working hard here, so it’s guaranteed to get you into an inspired and motivated frame of mind. It’s free to join, has fast Wifi and a top-notch cafe. Click the link above to sign-up.
Like the rest of the V&A, the National Art Library is a big, beautiful, airy space with massive windows; the calm atmosphere will do wonders for getting your thoughts in order when you’re busy revising. You need to register in advance and take proof of ID with an address (e.g. student card) when you go.
If you’re up for some serious studying, you’ll be in great company at the British Museum: past visitors have included Karl Marx, Oscar Wilde, Mahatma Ghandi and H.G Wells. Like the National Art Library, the Reading Room at the British Museum is steeped in history and will definitely help you concentrate. There is also an extensive archive of information related to the exhibits which will get your creative juices flowing. Again, you’ll need to register online in advance before you visit.
The Women’s Library at LSE has finally found a permanent home on the 4th floor after almost a century of moving around. Celebrating women throughout the ages, the information on offer is great for those of you studying subjects such as history, politics and English. The Women’s Library is very popular so you’ll need to register to book a study booth in advance.
Wherever you choose to revise, we wish you the very best of luck with your studies.
