Private Home

Location: Zones 2 & 3

From £189 per person / week

Combine the comforts of a home environment with more independent living and use of kitchen.
We offer a variety of homestays which may not always consist of a “traditional” family, i.e. mother, father and children, therefore you may find your host is a single person, a single parent with children or a retired couple. These types of hosts are equally as good, and can provide excellent hospitality to students.
In London, some homestay providers may not be of English origin but all speak English to native speaker standard and English will be the language spoken in the homestay. The UK has a rich history and is very proud of its cultural diversity. Our London homestay providers are a reflection of our society and may come from different backgrounds, age groups and socio-economic groups.
