Chelmsford is a vibrant town, with plenty to keep you occupied. It has three theatres, an eight screen Odeon cinema, four nightclubs, including Dukes and The Bassment, and a number of late licence bars such as Edwards and Que Pasa - these can all be found in the High Street and West End areas of town. The High Chelmer and Meadows shopping centres will ensure that you have plenty of opportunity for some retail therapy, and an indoor market runs from Tuesday to Saturday each week - the perfect place to pick up a bargain or two. And don't forget - London is just 30 minutes away and trains run frequently throughout the day so it's quick and easy to visit the capital for shopping, tourism and culture.

Cambridge is a very student-friendly destination and regarded as one of the most desirable places in the UK to live and study. The Grafton shopping centre is just a few minutes walk from the campus. The Grand Arcade shopping centre is a short ten minute walk away, as well as the daily markets which sell everything from fruit to vintage clothing. There is a wealth of restaurants ranging from Lebanese to Chinese close to the University, as well as a wide selection of bars and pubs. Cambridge has three cinemas, the ADC Theatre and The Junction which host live music, theatre and club nights, as well as the Mumford Theatre on the Anglia Ruskin Campus, which hosts a variety of events throughout the year. If you're a culture vulture there's plenty for you too. There are art galleries and museums including the world renowned Fitzwilliam College, with fabulous collections of artefacts. Anglia Ruskin also has our own art gallery, the Ruskin Gallery, which hosts a variety of exhibitions from student work to major artists.
