With an exciting and energetic social programme, you will share unforgettable experiences with new friends, discovering the best of our vibrant capital city, which was voted Number 1 in TripAdvisor's 2016 Travellers' Choice Awards!
Led by a dedicated Activity Manager, the social programme is designed to bring students together through immersive and inspiring activities, such as London tours, local photography walks, pub nights, ping-pong tournaments, summer BBQs, dance classes, visits to famous markets, museums and galleries, and even trips further afield, such as Cambridge.
At Hampstead, we offer a varied and exciting social programme to help you make the most of your London experience.
- Hampstead Walking Tour
Our Hampstead school is located between the beautiful historic village of Hampstead with its 320-hectare Hampstead Heath, and the leafy residential streets of West Hampstead, a short walk from its trendy cafés, bars, restaurants, and weekly farmer's market. With so much to explore in the local area, we regularly run local walking tours around West Hampstead and Hampstead, giving students the opportunity to discover the best of their surroundings and experience local London life.
- Camden Markets and Canal
Camden is a vibrant and magical area of London, a maze of interconnecting markets bustling with food stalls, clothes, jewellery and more. Only a bus ride away from the school, it is popular amongst Hampstead students and often features on the social programme. Regent's Canal flows through the centre of Camden, and is a great place to enjoy a walk on beautiful summer days.
- Westminster and the Southbank
Located on the Jubilee Line, West Hampstead is within easy reach of central London, taking you straight to Westminster. A trip to London isn't complete without a photo outside Big Ben, so we often bring our students to this area to embrace iconic London! Across the bridge begins the Southbank, a beautifully pedestrianised walk along the Thames River. Within 30 minutes, you will see many of London's famous sights as you walk along the river, including the Royal Festival Hall, St Paul's Cathedral, the Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and ending at Borough Market.
