Social life away from campus
The city of Stirling offers a variety of daytime and evening entertainment, including pubs, bars, clubs and restaurants, a bowling alley and cinema. There are plenty of shopping opportunities in Stirling. Most shops open until 5.30pm each day, with many opening until 8.00pm on Thursdays. Stirling plays an important role in the history of Scotland and the city and local area offer a number of opportunities to discover more.
You will find a whole host of things to do in the nearby cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh, both of which can be reached by train or bus in under an hour. Both cities have a long and interesting history and culture and they both offer many art galleries and museums, shops and restaurants, as well as a variety of clubs and pubs.
