explore: The old orchard Those longing for a slice of the countryside may be disappointed with Uxbridge’s urban setting. However, a short journey on the U9 bus to Harefield may just be your cup of tea. From there you are within reach of a series of lakes and a stunning walk along the Grand Union Canal. A short walk from the Dunster Close stop is a pub called The Old Orchard with a breathtaking view of the rolling fields, canal and boating lake.

Dinner: Prezzo Try a traditional stone-baked pizza at Prezzo - or maybe pasta, risotto or calzone. The menu is full of all kinds of delectable Italian dishes and the openplan and clean design of Prezzo gives it a relaxed vibe - perfect for a night out!

Uxbrigram [ LIFESTYLE ]

New to the area? Take a look at what Uxbridge can offer. It may surprise you! #explore #uxbridgefresher DIANNA REID OLLIE DE KRETSER Do: fassnidge Park When the weather is suitably summer-y go and check out Fassnidge Park. Situated in the heart of Uxbridge, it covers four acres and offers tennis courts and a skate park, as well as a bandstand for local events. Originally a memorial park, this is a pretty place to sit and watch your new world of Uxbridge go by...

see: odeon If you fancy a chilled night out, getting to know your new flat-mates, the Odeon cinema (located on the topmost floor of The Chimes Shopping Centre) is the place to go. It is open every day of the week, Wednesday being the busiest (no guesses why!) and even has an IMAX screen. The perfect place to kick back after the rush of last minute essay hand-ins!

shop: The chimes Uxbridge’s town centre hosts ‘The Chimes’ shopping centre, found just off the main high street. It is a perfect place for any shop-a-holic let loose with a student loan, or for those looking to dress to impress at Mega Global! There are 76 stores (with a fair few offering student discount with an NUS card) from including French Connection, Topshop and Topman, Republic and much more! You’ll definitely not be going back to halls empty handed…

Travel: With an oyster Uxbridge tube station is located at the heart of the town centre, where you can catch the Piccadilly or Metropolitan Line into central London (the latter is A LOT quicker!) Attached to the tube station is the Uxbridge bus hub where you can catch buses to and from campus: take the U3 to Cleveland Road (outside Mill Hall and the pond) or the U4/U1 to Kingston Lane (opposite the sports field) as well as the N207 night bus to and from Marble Arch in central London. An Oyster card is a pay-as-you-go smartcard; paying £5 deposit for an Oyster entitles you to discounted fares on any TFL bus and tube – and you can even top it up at Costcutter on campus!
