Your Home Away From Home
Staying with a host family is the most popular and most cost-effective accommodation option for language learners coming to London.
There is no better way to have a genuine experience of the British culture while practicing your English at the same time!
Host Family Benefits
A stay with a host family includes:
• 7 nights accommodation (from Sat to Sat or Sun to Sun)
• Washing machine
• Shared bathroom
• Common rooms
• Limited access to the kitchen
Our homestays are well-connected to our classrooms and can be reached by underground, train and bus.
London is one of the largest cities in Europe and is divided into six public transport zones. Depending on your preferences and budget you can choose which zone you want to stay in.
Central London, the closest to the city centre and all the main attractions. A great choice for students who want to be at the heart of the bustle and don’t mind paying a bit more for their accommodation.
What to see: The Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace and much more. It’s where the main action takes place!
The ring around the city where you can be in the centre in no time at all. The perfect option for those who still want to feel very much part of the buzz of London while saving up a tad on their accommodation.
What to see: Abbey Road and Camden Town if you want to stay on the hip side, Notting Hill and Portobello Market for a romantic atmosphere.
Farther away from the centre, this zone offers the best of both worlds: it is a little more cheaper than Zone 2 but still reasonably near to the city centre. The ideal solution for those looking for more spacious and affordable host family homes.
What to see: Here you can experience the scents of the Kew Gardens or take a look at the stars at Greenwich.
A more outlying district that provides you with the best of city and country life for a genuine London experience. With fast trains to all London mainline stations, it is the best option for students looking for great value for money and quiet surroundings.
What to see: In this area you have the possibility to visit the Royal Air Force Museum or the Wembley Stadium, one of the most famous sport arenas in the whole world.
