Worried your commute seems long?
Commuting in London is all part of living the city lifestyle. Londoners will know that it is normal to have an hour commute to school, college or work and the average commute time in London is 74 minutes a day.

Why not make yourself and playlist or put on a good podcast? One of our Halls Reps has put together some playlists to get you started. Trust us, the time will fly by.
