    Has the oldest outdoor swimming pool in the UK. 'nuff said.

    The very central location may sometimes be annoying, ie tourists clogging up the Great Gate, buskers playing the same tune over and over again all year round, and nightclub music pounding at night in some halls of residence.

    I’d do away with the parking facilities and give more space for bicycles and greenery (even though we have a lot of it anyway)

    It looks rather average, but you can eat a lot of food at a low price thanks to the unlimited sides. Breakfast is not very cheap, but the other meals win over anything else in town. There are always several options to choose from, including vegan and vegetarian. The menu goes on 3-week cycles, so it’s hard to get bored with the menu.
