At our Central London campus in Holborn we’re spoilt for choice when it comes to some of the best dessert places to feed that sugar rush. There’s enough choice to suit every budget and picky eater within London. So take a look at our top picks which are only a short walk away. Ready. Set. Go!

1) My Old Dutch

The original London pancake house offers savoury and sweet pancakes to suit all taste buds and is right opposite the Holborn campus. It’s a particular favourite stop for our students post-exam as it’s student budget-friendly, a short walk away and a great stress-buster. Check out the amazing selection for breakfast, lunch and dinner!


2) Bubblewrap

If you want a quirky twist to your traditional waffles, why not stop by Bubblewrap in Chinatown? It’s a dessert shop that's changed the shape of your waffle to that of bubble wrap! Piled high with ice-cream and lashings of toppings to seal the deal, you can’t go wrong with this take on traditional waffles with more than 70 years of experience and success from Hong Kong.

3) Milk Train

To get on the Milk Train, queue up, choose your soft serve and topping(s) then watch a skilled cotton-candy technician whirl a puff of cotton candy around a scoop of delicious ice cream. What more could you want? The final product is an insta-worthy piece of art, with looks to make any of your followers jealous.


4) Chin Chin Labs

What’s not to love about a steamy cup of hot chocolate and a scoop of toasted marshmallows to top it off - perfect to warm you up on the chillier winter days. If the weather is slightly warmer and you feel like cooling off, why not try any flavour of the nitrogen ice cream, with flavours that taste out of this world. There is plenty to explore on the menu.



If you would like to splurge then Ladurée is the place. They’ve got you covered with a variety of luxury desserts from their famous pastel macaroons to a selection of classic French pastries. The Covent Garden Laduree’ is only a 10-minute walk away with an amazing location and a perfect afternoon tea spot. So why not pamper yourself and have a macaroon or two?
