See London’s top tourist attractions but let us show you the hidden hotspots and events that Londoners love.

Pretty cottages and backstreets in Hampstead Village

Walking tours in London

Stroll through London’s streets and hidden squares on a walking tour with your English teacher or, if you are an advanced English speaker, a specialist Blue Badge Guide. We can also provide you with plenty of ideas if you prefer to explore on your own.

Changing of the Guard

Family-friendly days out

Tips on child-friendly restaurants, free attractions for kids and the best family days out in London are invaluable if you are holidaying with teenagers or younger children. Several of our English teachers have their own families and we also work with Blue Badge Guides who specialise in family tours.

Waddesdon Manor

Excursions outside London

Experience the English countryside and practice your English on a day trip to Oxford, Cambridge, Rye and Windsor with your teacher. We also organise trips with Blue Badge Guides to National Trust houses and gardens outside London such as Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire.

Borough Market

London’s markets

You may not find the best bargains in London’s markets but you will find streets bursting with colour and atmosphere – perfect for practising your English! Although a firm fixture on the tourist trail, Borough Market is well worth a visit while Broadway Market is great for people-watching and finding out what’s new on the London food scene.

Lush planting and foliage at Richmond Park

London’s green spaces and secret gardens

Take a break from city sightseeing with a visit to one of London parks. St James’ and Regent’s Park or, on the edges of the city, the Royal Parks of Hampstead Heath and Richmond Park, are some of our favourites, alongside the magnificent gardens at Kew.

English afternoon tea

English afternoon tea

No visit to England is complete without a traditional tea!
