When it comes to learning English in England, there’s no city more iconic than the nation’s capital: London! This metropolis’ reputation as a hub for entertainment, technology, and culture is renowned throughout the world. No matter if you’re a history buff or a cool fashionista looking for the latest trends, this city has something for everyone. 

However, just because the city is exciting for a daytrip, it doesn’t necessarily mean everyone wants to spend their entire trip sleeping and studying right in the city center. For those who want to enjoy all the benefits of London but without the noise and at a more peaceful pace, Alpadia’s London-Woldingham campus is the perfect place to learn. 

Don’t believe us? Here are five reasons why our London-Woldingham campus is great: 


Safe and peaceful 

Woldingham is a suburb of London, located just a train ride away from the city center. With the campus itself located in a former boarding school surrounded by countryside, you can be rest assured that your stay will be safe and quiet, without all the general hustle and bustle you find in any city. When dealing with younger students aged between 10-17, it is especially important for parents to feel that they’re children are as safe and well-cared for as possible. 


Stunning countryside 

Staying in a rural location doesn’t have to be boring: this campus comes with 700 acres of grounds and has stunning views of the most picturesque English countryside. Because of this, the social program on offer makes the natural surroundings with plenty of outdoor games and sports on offer in between classes. 


Close to London 

But if you do fancy a trip into the city, then it’s only around 30-minutes on the train. This simple and affordable means of transport allows you to travel and explore the capital with ease. Our social program also includes many daytrips to see some of London’s best landmarks – including Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, and the Houses of Parliament.  

Trust us, you won’t miss out. 


Great transport links 

It’s not just London that’s easy to get to! Woldingham train station allows you to connect to trains that go to Brighton, Oxford, and Windsor. If you fancy travel to some of the UK’s other popular cities and really explore more of English culture, then you’ll be able to as part of our extensive social programs. 


English boarding school experience 

If you’ve ever seen Harry Potter, you probably already have some idea of what an English boarding school looks like. Sadly, you won’t be studying potions, but you will get to learn in a spectacular 19th century building, complete with grounds and dormitories that at least feel magical, even if what you’re studying is not.
