Uxbridge is a compact and friendly town on the edge of West London. It is just a 20-minute walk or short bus-ride from the heart of the campus, and the town centre is packed with more than 300 shops, a multiplex cinema, two shopping malls, dozens of bars and restaurants and a £3 million nightclub. The university is within easy access to Central London If you want to experience one of the greatest cities in the world, travelling from London to Uxbridge is very straightforward - the town is at the end of the Metropolitan and Piccadilly lines on the London Underground, and over-ground trains from West Drayton Station (which is a short bus-ride from campus) take you to London-Paddington in just 20 minutes. You can also catch night buses to Uxbridge from Central London throughout the night. One of Brunel's best-kept secrets is its proximity to the country-side; the Colne Valley Park and the Grand Union Canal is only a 15-minute walk away. The Park consists of miles of woods, walkways, lakes, rivers and nature reserves and is one of the largest natural parks in the London area. If you're looking for somewhere a little more peaceful than the town centre, you can make your way down to one of the waterfront pubs.
