Home to Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, the Tower of London and Big Ben, London is a great place to stay if you want to experience true British culture. As our capital city, it’s no surprise that it’s the largest and busiest across the country, meaning it offers a 24/7 lively atmosphere like no other. A popular choice amongst international students, there is plenty to see and do, from impressive gardens and museums, to some of the best restaurants in the world.
Spread over such a large area, London’s underground network is a quick and reliable mode of transport to get from one place to another. You can spend your morning browsing Camden Market, walk along the River Thames for a spot of lunch and finish your evening in the popular district of Soho. Wherever you need to be, you can guarantee a quick journey on the tube.
From rooftop bars overlooking London Bridge, to 5 star restaurants at the top of the Shard, London has some impressive dining experiences. From the famous bagels and indian restaurants of Brick Lane to afternoon tea in Chelsea, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out. And the nightlife is even more impressive from 24 hour clubs to popular student nights, the city never sleeps.
If you like a bit of retail therapy then London’s your city. From world renowned department stores like Harrods and Liberty London, to boutique department stores and designer brands. Oxford street is home to some of the biggest high-street names and offers a unique experience as you walk amongst the grand architecture London is famous for, or hop on the tube and head to Westfield, one of the UK’s largest shopping centres.
Whether you’ve experienced London before or are new to the city, we know there’ll always be something to do and our building in Westminster, Castello Court, sits amongst it all, the perfect base for exploring the city.
