We are London Homestays….

We understand that moving to a busy city like London can be a challenging experience and we at London Homestays strive to make the transition as seamless as possible. We are one of very a small number of accommodation agencies to be recognised by the British Council as a provider of homestays for accredited English Language schools. This is something we are very proud of and provides you with an assurance of the quality of our agency and accommodation. We take the utmost care in ensuring that all of your requirements are met in full, which include searching our vast database of trusted host families to find the best fit for your specific request.

We know London because we live there, work there and socialise there. We understand what it is like to be an international student as many of us have lived and studied in other countries ourselves. We know which areas of London are the most convenient to travel each day to your place of study or internship. We also know which areas are safer than others, which areas are fun and lively and which areas are quiet, where to eat and most importantly, where to stay.

OFFICIALLY REGISTERED WITH THE BRITISH COUNCIL
London Homestays meets the standard for registration with the British Council as a provider of homestay accommodation for adults and under 18s for accredited providers in London.

I am very thankful to London Homestays! Very nice and helpful staff, who have been patient all the way with my enquiries and helped me with efficiency! And the living place is also good, with great landlord and landlady and a reasonable price. It has been a great experience!

Really great experience to turn to London Homestays for help especially when i just arrived at London without a good place to live. Many many thanks to sweet Kate O'Connor and Richard Lambert for recommending over a dozen wonderful families to me and settling things down so perfectly within just two days. I am very grateful for your extremely professional help. I hope and am definitely sure that i will have a lovely time staying with my host lady in London. Can't thank Kate and Richard enough for all the effort they have made. Take care. XX Rachel

Thank you to all at London Homestays for help with both my group this summer and for my individual students as well. My students enjoyed staying with your hosts and I received a lot of positive feedback. :) I hope to bring more groups next year and will definitely use you again. A special thank you to Katie, Charlotte and Annette for answering my questions and making our stay so enjoyable. また来年お会いしましょう!

London is an amazing place. The city gives you so many opportunities to develop yourself: to study and work, but also enjoy yourself very much! However, what makes it such a fantastic place are also the people. It is always difficult to come to another country and start afresh. But if you have friends around you, everything becomes easier. And London Homestays helped me to find these friends. Thank you guys for accomodating me at Pearl's. She is such a warm and kind person who made me feel like at home at her own home :) It's been a fantastic year! Wish you all the best!

James and Steve are fantastic to work with and I highly recommend UK Student Residences. I booked a flat from the United States for 10 American university students to stay at Stratford One. It was a 6 week stay in the summer of 2017, and I did everything remotely without any challenges. The accommodation was great and the customer service exemplary. 5 starts out of 5!
