FRESH focus on Loughborough

By FreshSocial 13 Feb 2017

Despite what you might've heard, there's more to Loughborough than elite sports facilities and the so-called campus bubble...

Although they are fantastic!

Here are some of the top student hotspots to visit during your time here:

Where to drink?

You're never far from a comforting bar or pub in Loughborough. Have you been to these yet?
Where? Wild Lime, The Griffin, JC's, Revs, The Orange Tree, PhantomAmber Rooms

Where to eat?

Whether you want chain-y or independent, to splash out or keep it cheap, these are the top foodie favourites around town.
Where? Peter's, The Paget, Thai Grand, The Basin, Baxter Gate, Browns Lane, Mount GurkhaMeet Burger

Head to the club?

People will tell you to head to Nottingham or Leicester for a 'proper' night out, and they're probably right if you want that city vibe. But, that doesn't mean you won't have unforgettable nights at one of these too!
Where? Echos, The Kelso, Brooklyn Bar, Firefly, the S.U, Revs

Outdoorsy

Loughborough is surrounded by areas of countryside and perfect places to walk, run, cycle, and escape for a few hours. Follow the Quorn footpaths, cycle to Beacon Hill, or, relax with your mates at the Quarry!

Time to HIIT the gym?

Home to many world class athletes past and present, Loughborough is certainly not short of fitness facilities.
Where? Holywell, (Power)Base, Jim, Fit4lessLoughborough Leisure Centre, PureGym, DynamiteAnytime Fitness

Where to shop?

Nobody's denying that Loughborough town centre is slightly out of the loop when it comes to high-street shopping faves, but, when you've got 2 big cities less than 20 minutes away on the train, who cares?!

Where to watch a film?

Need an evening away from the books? Head to the cinema! If you've been doing a little too much damage to your loan recently then see what's on at Flix, the student-led cinema, for a fraction of the price.
Where? Cineworld, Odeon, Flix 

Happy exploring!
