We offer group accommodation with homestays in safe residential locations where groups of students can be placed within close proximity to each other. In London, we have dedicated areas for groups with many of our hosts close to each other. On average, group homestays are 45-60 minutes from the city centre. Homestays can accommodate up to four students per house, mostly in twin rooms/two students per room, and offer continental breakfast and evening meal or full board with packed lunches. Please see ‘Meal Plans‘ for more information. We can also arrange homestays for coach drivers, teachers and group leaders in single or shared rooms.
With group bookings, we offer and are happy to arrange a meeting point with the hosts to welcome/receive and drop off their respective students to ensure a smooth arrival and departure. Our group rep ensures smooth transition of students to the right homestays on arrival and is prepared for any eventualities with our 24 hour emergency staff.
We host hundreds of groups each year and are very experienced in handling juniors as well as adults. We handle winter and summer school group accommodation as well as year round group homestays through our dedicated groups team.
Our minimum stay is 4 nights (available off peak only) although in order to give students the opportunity to experience British life to the full and practice their English, we recommend at least a one week stay. We offer multi centre homestay, for example one week in London and one week in Edinburgh. Please see our UK map of homestay locations. Other group services include purchase of travelcards, coach transfers from and to any airport or location in the UK, sightseeing trips, Blue Badge Guides and a full social programme. All available on request.
