It’s no secret that students party like nobody else. But which student cities are the most expensive to go and party in? Here are the 10 cities which spend the most each month on going out, according to NatWest.
Students living in Southampton spend an average of £33.70 on going out each month, and that’s not even including their £27 a month on booze. Although in comparison to the rest of list, it isn’t too bad. They’re clearly all too busy on the yachts, or in these great clubs.
Those students up north still spend a fair bit on going out, even with the supposedly cheap northern prices. On average, students spend £34.20 on going out, and then a whopping £40 on booze! The national average is £29! Although we can’t blame them, look at these great bars.
8. Nottingham and Belfast
Coming in joint 8th place are Belfast and Nottingham, where students spend an average of £34.60 on going out each month. However, the cities differ when it comes o how much said students then splurge on drinks. Nottingham students spend a whole £30, and it’s definitely in these gorgeous cocktail bars. Meanwhile, Belfast students are a little more modest with £28.
Anyone studying in Birmingham seems to spend a reasonable amount, with going out costing them a monthly average of £35.60, and drinks costing them a below average £21 per month. We thought that Brummies would be a bit more exciting, to be honest. Unless they’re all just taking advantage of happy hour…
Leeds students spend £35.90 on average each month when it comes to going out. But on top of that, they then spend a whole £36 a month on booze. Leeds, you clearly are having a good time. Invite us sometime.
Manchester students fork out an average of £36.70, not including drinks. That’s a lot of entry payments… If you’re looking to go out in Manchester, check out the best student nights, and how to get smashed for a fiver. No wonder Manchester isn’t one of the cities spending the most on booze with deals like this!
Leicester is next on the list, splurging a whole £36.80 on going out. That’s the equivalent to 7 pitchers from Spoons or a weekly food shop at Aldi… But then it seems drinks must be cheap in Leicester, with a monthly drinks budget of £18. If you’re going out in Leicester, maybe check out some of these happy hour deals.
Liverpool students spend a whopping £38.30 on going out each month, which isn’t too much until you add big city drinks costs (they spend £33 a month on drinks!). But if you’re worried about that, then take advantage of these 2 for 1 drinks deals in Liverpool.
Those students in Sheffield are spending £39.80 a month on going out, which is a tad steep, especially considering the average spend of £37 a month on drinks. Anyone looking to not break the bank whilst out in Sheffield should visit these student nights in the city.
Of course, the capital is going to be the most expensive to go out in. With clubs charging buckets for entry, and drinks charges rocketing the second the clock hits midnight – we really don’t know what else we expected. Although it wasn’t £50.70. No wonder Londoners only spend £18 a month on drinks!
