As one of the most diverse cities in Europe, London is home to many different nationalities and communities. British Indians make up just over 6% of the city’s population with large communities in West and East London.


With such a large Indian community in London, there are regularly different events you can attend. Every year there are large Eid and Diwali festivals in Trafalgar Square, with many smaller community celebrations also taking place in the different London boroughs.

Places of worship

Another benefit of being such a diverse city, London caters for many different faiths with many places of worship available for you to access.

In addition to a prayer room on campus on the lower ground floor, we have also listed a small selection of places of worship.


  • Shri Swaminarayan Mandir – Neasden (the largest Hindu temple in Europe)


  • East London Mosque & London Muslim Centre – Whitechapel
  • East London Markazi Masjid – Whitechapel
  • The London Central Mosque – Marylebone

Places of interest

With the Campus situated near Liverpool Street, we are also just a short walk away from Brick Lane and Whitechapel where you will find large selection of halal restaurants.

If you are looking for traditional clothing, or an even bigger selection of halal restaurants to choose from, you can head to Green Street in Forest Gate, or Southall. Both locations have extensive shopping options with many boutiques and outlets catering for every occasion. Both locations also hold large Eid celebrations.

Health and fitness

If you have an active lifestyle, our London Campus is situated just a short walk from several different gyms, many of which offer student memberships to help you save money. If you would prefer to keep fit away from the gym, London also has many other fitness options, with free running clubs, and outdoor fitness classes in many of the different parks.
