Only a short walk from City University and CASS Business School and within very easy reach of all the major London universities, you’ll never need to rush to class no matter how late you lounge in your three-quarter or double bed. Old Street tube’s handy position on the Northern Line means heading up to heaving Camden Market or south to stroll along the Thames at London Bridge is a breeze. But no one one could blame you if you wanted to stay closer to home to buy some chops or a steak at Smithfield meat market for a slap-up meal back at home, or to take in a performance or exhibition at Europe’s largest multi-arts centre, the Barbican.
Canto Court itself has plenty of stylishly-decorated shared space to unwind when you finally make it back. Catch up with your housemates over a game of pool or settle in for an afternoon’s movie marathon in the snug TV room. After all that lounging, you may need to take a breather in the unique courtyard - laid out over two floors and lined with mini palm trees, it wouldn’t look out of place outside one of the area’s trendy night-time destinations.
The high-quality contemporary studio flats are brilliant value, with the top-end options more like the one-bedroom flat of some start-up whiz based at nearby Old Street’s Silicon Rounadabout. There’s a cleaning company if your workload isn’t leaving you much time for vacuuming, and you’ll never run out of teabags with several big-name supermarkets just outside the door.
