London is certainly one of the most desirable destinations, as it inspires the learning of British English, which is the most used language for work and travelling. In addition to being one of the most modern and vital cities in the world, the capital of the United Kingdom has a large number of monuments that testify to its past and intertwine with its present.
It is necessary to visit the most important monuments, starting from Buckingham Palace, the home of the English monarchy since 1837, where the most important ceremonies and diplomatic meetings are held, passing the House of Parliament, the political heart of the United Kingdom and Big Ben, the most famous clock tower in the world.
A bit of fun doesn’t hurt, so London is home to the world’s largest Ferris wheel, the London Eye, which, at 135 metres high, offers breathtaking views across the city; Piccadilly Circus is the point of attraction for all young people and tourists visiting the city and much more. This makes the perfect location for your school study trip “mini-stay”

The homestay is perhaps the most complete immersion method, ideal for students who want to take English courses, allowing them to make the most of the experience. Students will be sharing a room with one or two classmates and will be hosted by a local experienced host family, this will be a full-immersion cultural experience as they will see how locals live, what they eat and more. For some students, this may be a life-experience challenge as for most of them this will be their first experience outside their parents’ home but worth to try as we think this will let the students grow not only culturally but also personally. For most of the students, instead, this will be a home away from home and enjoy the experience with the locals. All host families are checked and inspected regularly and need to abide by a certain pre-set standard requirement.
We have the availability of residential accommodation all year round, our type of accommodation varies depending on your budget and requirements. We can offer students residence accommodation with students staying in two or three per room with shared or private facilities, hotel or B&B accommodation with students staying in triple or family rooms with private facilities. If you would like to choose this option for your students but your budget is very limited, we will be able to offer hostel accommodation. Most of our hostels are 4 stars with students staying in multiple rooms of 4,6 and sometimes 8 students in a room with private facilities, but we have also budget hostels where students will be staying in larger rooms with or without an en-suite room. We will organise for you, breakfast and dinner if this is required. Most of our residential accommodation is situated in the city centre or not far from it, but please bear in mind that availability may be limited, therefore, for this option, we may require an advance booking.
