Sunderland, UK

Once a murky, industrial city prior to the 1970s, Sunderland has been made over into a rather flashy and youthful college town with a pulsing urban nightlife and fashionable streets. Along the seafront is Seaburn Strip, which is packed with classy Italian, Thai and Indian restaurants, as well as stylish cafés and atmospheric pubs. The bars in Sunderland are open every night, and the alcohol is reactively cheap as they cater to a college crowd.
