Homestays & Private Homes

At Britannia we aim to provide you with a safe, happy, comfortable housing option for your homestay. 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, while language students can benefit from the chance to practise their English.
