Denying the unique London vibe that comes with studying at Condé Nast College is impossible. There’s no shortage of sites to see, restaurant menus to navigate, and tube stations to master. Luckily, our students aren’t on their own – here, we’re taking a look at five London-based youtubers that can help any incoming student prepare for the adventures ahead!
Love and London
Moving abroad can be stressful. Jess, Love and London’s American-born host, has plenty of advice to give UK newcomers, including a collaboration with insider info on the international uni student experience. Other videos include food recommendations, local hangouts, shopping spots, and general London tips.
Day-in-the-life, wanton mukbangs, and London restaurant recommendations; Shu has it all. Situated just north of Chinatown, Condé Nast College is in prime dim sum territory and Shu of Dejashu knows exactly where dumpling lovers should look for great Asian restaurants. Specializing in food and travel, her most recent videos are of New York and Montreal but, rest assured, the London posts will be back soon.
Don’t be fooled by her Canadian accent, Estée has been a UK youtuber for years. Estée Lalonde is a style and beauty influencer by day but, if you’re willing to dig, a London vlogger by night. After taking part in vlogtober (daily videos throughout the month of October), her weekly uploads are now making a comeback with everything from favorites videos to vlogs about her dog.
She also has a podcast if that’s more your speed.
Looking like GQ spilled over into a casual youtube channel, Jesse and Will are stylishly serving up their favorite eats, drinks, and events in London. Their videos tend to be shorter and more-edited than your average vlogger but there’s no skimping on content. If bar reviews are your thing, they’re the most likely channel on this list to pop in a drinking suggestion.
Let’s be honest, every college student could use some new ideas in the kitchen. The team at Sortedfood produce quality cooking content for every level of kitchen proficiency. Recently, their channel has become more challenge-based, but a quick trip into their upload history yields plenty of straightforward recipe videos. Plus sortedfood.com is chock full every recipe imaginable.
