  • Visitor Information

An epic view of the Thames, especially cool in the evenings, is one the greatest assets of the KCL student union on Surrey Street. A student venue so expect beer sticky tables, roll-up cigarettes and pool tables aplenty in the popular waterfront bar. The Poly on the Strand also houses Tutu's, a nightclub of sorts named after the college's most famous alumnus.
