In the local area

With 62000 Nepali residents currently living in Britain, London thrives with great opportunities to meet fellow Nepalis. 

You might for example want to join in the annual Nepali Mela, organised by the Tamu Dhee UK where various parts of the Nepali community come together at the Kempton Park Racecourse near London.

There are over a hundred Nepalese organizations in the UK, all of which can be found on the Nepalese Embassy website.

The Nepalese community closest to our university is the Gurkha Nepalese Community in Hounslow, an easy 40 minute bus ride from Twickenham. Hounslow is a highly diverse town, with quite a few Nepalese restaurants and Gurkha Super Market, a Nepalese store, where you will be able to find all the ingredients you know from home.

Whether you are a practicing Hindu, Buddhist or Muslim, London offers you appropriate places of worship where you can meet those sharing your beliefs. There is Pashupatinath Temple for example, the first Shiva temple in Europe that was established by people of Nepalese origin. And you will not struggle to find Buddhist Temples or Mosques, either!
