London activities

The campus

Kings London is located in a safe, green and prosperous London suburb called Beckenham. It is only 20 minutes by train to central London but does not have the noise, expense or uncertainties that city centre living can bring.

The College has seen recent modernisation and expansion, including the construction of a stylish ‘Link’ building that houses a bright reception area and popular cafeteria.

Accommodation

In London you can choose to stay in a comfortable student house, or to live with a host family. In both cases, you would be within easy reach of the campus.
