Social Programme of our English language school in London - the life besides our English classes in London
Our English language school in London does not hold a regular social programme yet as we are located in London there are many things to do. After your English classes in London, you can also take a train or coach to visit many interesting places in the UK. Even the most dedicated Londoner needs to get away sometimes. With so many beautiful and fascinating places to discover, it's simply a matter of deciding which historic UK city to visit first. A few of many places of interest are:
- Oxford and Stratford
- Stonehenge and Bath
- Oxford and Blenheim
- Wales (overnight)
- The Cotswolds
- Windsor & Hampton Court
- Leeds castle and Rochester
Places worth visiting after the English classes in London:
Auctions at Christie's - A great opportunity to see a real auction taking place. There are two venues of this world-famous auction house in London - one close to school on King Street and the other a short distance away in South Kensington. Previous auctions that we have visited include "Football Memorabilia", "Old Masters' Pictures", "Important Furniture", "Gold Jewellery" as well as many others. You'll have the chance to view the items before they go "under the hammer" and then you'll be watching as collectors take out their cheque books and put in their bids to buy the many wonderful items.
Visit to the Globe Theatre - The Globe Theatre is a faithful reconstruction of the Elizabethan playhouse. Beneath the theatre every aspect of Shakespeare's work has been brought to life using modern technology imaginatively combined with traditional crafts. You can enjoy being centre stage among Globe actors and catch a glimpse of a Russian Hamlet or Japanese Macbeth. Take a 'virtual' look around the theatre and the exhibitions; and go on a real life tour with knowledgeable guides.
Visit to the Tate Modern - Tate Modern is Britain's new national museum of modern art. Housed in the former Bankside Power Station it displays the Tate Collection of international modern art from 1900 to the present day, including works by Dali, Bacon, Picasso, Matisse, Rothko and Warhol as well as contemporary works. Visitors enter through the breathtaking entrance - the former Turbine Hall - and are swept up through two floors featuring three levels of galleries, with shops and caffes.
Visit to the Old Bailey Courts of Justice - A chance to watch a real trial taking place at London's central criminal court. All the most serious cases are brought here, so you could see a trial about anything from fraud to murder!
