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.

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!

My daughter’s college didn’t help us with accommadations for her study abroad to London. We were a little intimated until we found London Homestays. They couldn’t have been more helpful and communicated with us every step of the way. Not knowing the city, my daughter chose a homestay that was going to be a long commute. They worked with us and were able to move her to a residence hall with an easier commute time. Even though she moved, her host was wonderful and she was more than a little sad to leave her. Their attention to detail and professionalism gave me so much peace of mind knowing that my daughter was in good hands. I highly recommend making London Homestays your first call when trying to find lodging for study abroad or internships.`

I go to school in NY and they told me I would have to find my own housing when I studied abroad. My mom found London Homestays and I can't imagine going through this process without the entire team at London Homestays, specifically Annette. I have never really been outside the US so I had no idea what I was doing but Annette and Charlotte answered every question I had and were so patient. I ordered an airport transfer and they were cooperative even when there was problems with my flight. I also realized, upon moving in, I picked a home too far from my school and the commute was very hard. Annette did not hesitate to help and actually found a residence closer to my school, to lesson the commute. Even though the commute is better, I am so sad to leave my host family. They take great care to make sure every homestay really does feel like a home away from home. They are always available to help and answer any questions and I can't imagine going through this process without them.

London Homestays team have done a great job. We had a specific problem in finding a place to stay and they had searched for the best possible solution. After 1 year, we are very happy with the overall experience. Thank you.

UK Residences provided a wonderfully easy and personal process to finding a place to stay in London. Charlotte Wooler specifically helped my friends and I with providing specific information and answering any and all of our questions. I would definitely recommend to friends and use this company on future stays in London.

Changed plans meant we didn't book but help and service we had while still looking was exceptional. Very prompt and offered us a place that we would have been very happy to take up. Fully recommend.
