Fun Ways to Escape from your Studies
With exam season right around the corner, it can feel like you’re trapped inside your bedroom studying, day in day out. We all know that our brains can only take so much studying and revision, and actually, getting out of the house and enjoying some fresh activities can help spur you on and encourage you to keep going.
So, if you’re feeling trapped by your study schedule and you need an escape, here are some fun activities in London that will provide you with the perfect way to escape from your studies!
Visit Escape Rooms
These are great fun as a group, and they’re an activity that still requires brain power and focus to succeed – so they will keep your brain engaged. It’s a great option for a study break, as it’s focussed, time-limited and full of fun too. Gather up your friends (big and little groups are welcome!) and choose the best themed escape room for your friendship group to take a crack at!
In London, Omescape is the leading escape room provider and they have loads of fun escape rooms with different themes and plot lines. One of the leading rooms is called ‘Kingdom of Cats’ which is a Planet of the Apes concept plot line and really quirky. Another favourite is the ‘Joker’s Asylum’ escape room – a firm favourite for horror fans and comic book fans!
If technology is more your style – then try out the VR escape room experiences, where you’ll be digitally transported out of this world to complete a mission before time runs out!
Borough Market is a great escape for students, because it’s fun, bustling and full of energy and atmosphere. Your group of friends can all take a stroll around the different food stalls, pick their favourite and enjoy a lunch together. There are lots of great seating options in the market now too, which makes eating in a big group much easier than ever before.
Take in a museum or gallery
There are so many museums and galleries in London, and most of them are totally free to look around. If you want to stay in the studying mindset, but you just need to get out of the house and have a break – strolling around a museum or gallery is the perfect study escape. The Tate galleries (especially the Tate Modern) are especially interesting, even for people who don’t have an invested interest in the arts.
Stroll around Hyde Park
If you need to get out to get fresh air, then a long walk around one of London’s beautiful parks will do the trick. If you plan it well, you can plan your route to go via one of the many restaurants just off the park, and have an energising lunch along the way. On your walk you could either be joined by friends (a long walk is always a great chance to catch up on the week’s events) or go solo and enjoy a relaxing podcast instead.
Whichever you choose, it’s always good to take a break and refresh before going back to your studies.
