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.

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.
