Free Time

Our popular Activity Programme includes six activities in and around London each week. There is a different activity programme every month so even if you are here on a long course there will be new things to see and do each month. There is at least one member of staff on each activity to guide you. Many of the activities are free, on others you pay only for your food and drink, travel and entrance charges.

We have a special Family Activity Programme for families, please check here.

The Activity Programme is a...

  • Great way to make friends, socialise and practise the English that you are learning.

Weekend Excursions

We work with a carefully selected company that runs weekend excursions with UK day trips or overnight trips to UK and European places of interest. Examples: Paris Weekend (£175); Amsterdam & Bruges (£185); Edinburgh & The Highlands (£225); North Wales & Snowdonia (£165); Liverpool & Manchester (£165).

Notes:

  • Prices are guide prices.
  • Unaccompanied under-18s can only go on day trips within the UK, not overnight trips, and must have written permission from their parent for each trip.
  • Trips to other countries may require another visa for that country, so make sure you get the right travel permissions before booking your trip.
