I love the location of Goodenough College. It is five minutes walk to Russell Square tube station, so convenient for central London. I also like the fact that it is so close to the Brunswick Centre which has shops, restaurants, grocery stores and an excellent cinema. Marchmont Street is just behind the Brunswick Centre, more great restaurants, particularly Moreish which I love for its delicious and healthy foods. Also, for book lovers proximity to Skoob and Judd Books is a plus.
