In some great news for students at Royal Holloway, University of London, the institution has once again been named as the ‘most beautiful’ in the United Kingdom. This is a fantastic honour to have, and is testament to the work that goes into making our campus such an incredible place to study and visit. As this ranking shows, we are lucky to study at an institution like this. With our league table ranking consistently high, it seems as if this is an amazing time to be a student at Royal Holloway!
The Royal Holloway campus is located in Egham – a town located near to both Windsor and Heathrow. The location of the campus is excellent, offering a great mix between being close to London, yet still being able to enjoy the benefits that living in Surrey has to offer. The University is consistently labelled as one of the most beautiful in the world. The flagship Founder’s Building is simply stunning – and is known worldwide for its beauty and portrayal in the media. This is supplemented by many other incredible buildings on the campus.
Royal Holloway finished top of the league, but with an abundance of beautiful campuses in the UK, they beat off some tough competition. The University of Edinburgh finished 2nd, with the University of Oxford completing the podium. Unsurprisingly, the University of Cambridge was 4th, with Keele University coming home an admirable 5th. Others in the top ten included the University of Glasgow, Queen’s University Belfast and the University of Greenwich. Congratulations to all Universities involved!
Royal Holloway is certainly a stunning University! There are so many picturesque sights, and with ample green space, we aren’t surprised with this ranking! The campus comprises 135 acres of parkland, all of which is full of beauty! The exotic range of trees and plants around the campus also makes for numerous walks, which are always entertaining. It is a great achievement to finish top of the list, and we will hope that we can repeat this finish again next year!
