Canterbury, a beautiful medieval town founded by the Romans, is home to the world’s most famous cathedral and is also home to two universities. It is the capital of Kent, a region often called “the Garden of England”, dotted with medieval castles, gardens and small and characteristic coastal towns.
The city has plenty of cafes, pubs, clubs and modern shopping malls. It has excellent connections to London, Dover and the English Channel. Here you can fully taste the true English Style, and see the beautiful English houses typical from this part of England.
The friendliness of its inhabitants, the scenic shops that follow each other in the picturesque streets of the centre makes the perfect destination for your school group mini-stays.

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.
The focal point of the city is definitely the Canterbury Cathedral. Built in 597, the cathedral had to be restored and rebuilt several times, due to many wars and fires…
