Home Away From Home
At Britannia we aim to provide you with a safe, happy, comfortable home away from home. London hosts are selected for their friendliness and their homes must meet British Council and English UK standards.
We have an exceptionally good choice of homestay accommodation offering hundreds of great rooms throughout the city (Zones 1-5). All Britannia homestays are conveniently located, close to public transport and offer a high standard of accommodation. Students can socialise and eat with their host family, and language students can benefit from the chance to practise their English.
Comfortable homes of a high standard located in Zones 2-5.
With a high standard of decor, located in prime areas of Zones 2, 3 and 4.

The host will provide accommodation and meals as booked. Rooms will be cleaned and bed linen and towels changed at least once a week. The student will be provided with his/her own house key and the host is there to offer help and advice as well as to take an interest in the student’s well-being. We aim to match a student’s requirements as closely as possible with a suitable host. Language students will not be placed in the same homestay as others of the same mother-tongue, except by special request. English is always the main language spoken in the home. Homestays can accommodate a maximum of 4 students at any one time, depending on the size of the home.
We can also accommodate junior students (aged under 18) in specially selected homestays, with hosts who have undergone all the required safety checks. Special conditions apply to this age group. Further information can be requested.
Homestays are located in London, mainly in zones 2, 3, 4 and 5 of the London transport system. Hosts do not usually live in the town centre as much of central London is commercial and not residential. Zone 4 and 5 often offer more spacious accommodation in a less crowded area. The London transport system is very convenient and if you use the Underground, travel from zones 4 and 5 may only take a few minutes longer. Further information on London’s transport system can be found here
Living in London for seven months was one of the most important experiences I have ever had. I am very grateful to Britannia for arranging my accommodation and to Brendan and Brenda for their hospitality. [They] are a lovely host family who know how to socialize with their guests and make them feel welcome

St Giles have used Britannia Student Services to source accommodation for our students for a number of years and have always been met with professional, friendly, flexible staff members who deliver a fast, quality service.
I had very good experience because of the team of Britannia... very friendly and helpful. The room was very nice, clean and big. My flatmates were very friendly. I was very pleased with my stay at Rathbone Place.
