Cities to Study Abroad in Europe

London Calling (The Top Ten

You’re welcome.

With almost 4, 900 acres, London is covered in beautiful parks boasting colorful gardens, serene lakes, and lush fields for you to join a pick-up game of football. I recommend renting a paddle boat in Hyde Park and spending the afternoon reading and floating on the Serpentine!

In case you were wondering, they speak English in England, meaning that us mono-lingual Americans (hey! I speak a bit of Spanish!) can feel right at home (but with way better slang). London is the biggest city in Europe (if you don't consider Istanbul in Europe), with just over 8 million people. While that might seem daunting, that also means that there are always things to see and people to meet. Take advantage of that and really explore every part of this fabulous city.

My personal favorite spot is Marylebone High Street


I’m slightly biased, but after taking public transportation in a plethora of other European cities, London’s blows the competition away. The world is truly your oyster (it’s a British thing…) in London (despite the outrageous prices, but that’s a topic for another time) with an updated underground system, tons of classic red, double-decker buses, and over-ground trains to ensure that you get to wherever your heart desires.

Make sure to actually mind the gap.

I realize that Europe is chock full of history, but England’s is so much more well-known in America than most countries’ histories. Also, I’d take a bet and say most students have read at least one book by a classic English writer—you can’t say that about every country.

10) It’s the Greatest City on Earth This is a fact. Living in London makes you both hate it and love it so passionately that you can’t imagine living anywhere else. But this feeling can’t be explained—you must experience it yourself!

What are you waiting for? London is calling (to you in the faraway town) and it’s up to you to answer.
