This is the ideal homestay location for independent-mined students who want the freedom to explore London - you are not dependent on being driven anywhere or having to take costly or time-consuming public transport.
Even intensive teaching courses (25 or 30 hours) leave plenty of time for students to explore London as most attractions are within 10-15 minutes away from the apartment.
All the major sightseeing attractions are within walking distance or a short bus ride - six major Royal Parks - including Hyde Park, St James Park, Regents Park and Kensington Palace Gardens.
