One of London’s most famous universities! The single construction complex is in a modern campus site at 10 minutes walk from Uxbridge centre. Self-contained and providing everything one would expect from a modern University, it has shops, a travel agency, a bank, a bookstore, a supermarket, two amazing sports centres with indoor basketball and volleyball courts, as well as many football fields, tennis courts etc. The sports facilities are bordered by dense vegetation and foliage that create an environment of calmness and reflection. It is unquestionably one of London’s most prestigious Universities!
Uxbridge is a famous old market town on the river Come and at the last stop of the Underground’s Metropolitan Line. It is in a sheltered suburb of greater London, 45 minutes by tube from the city’s noisy centre with its overcrowded streets. It is an exceptionally good choice because you can have an educational holiday while being able to enjoy London in all its glory. What’s more, apart from the capability of exploring the famous capital, the nearby motorway also brings many famous places of interest within easy reach. Amongst these are Oxford, Cambridge and Windsor, while Heathrow airport is only a 20 minute drive.
London is the capital of Great Britain and the largest city in Europe. With its 43 universities London is a leading European and global destination for higher education. Its sights are countless! In a recent survey, the top ten most visited attractions are the British Museum, National Gallery, Natural History Museum, Tate Modern, London Eye, Science Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum, Tower of London, Royal Museums Greenwich and Madame Tussaud's.
That is not to overlook Buckingham Palace, the British Parliament, the wonderful Hyde Park, St. James Park & Regents Park, the various cathedrals dotted around the city, the fabulous theatres invariably staging exceptional performances, the innumerable shops and shopping centres that cater daily to thousands of casual buyers and shopaholics. Then, there are the enticing areas of Covent Garden, Kensington, Notting Hill, Soho, and Mayfair with their assortment of restaurants, eateries, teashops, coffee bars, open-air flea markets and, of course, the city’s iconic landmark, the inimitable Big Ben.
We have no doubt not mentioned dozens of other interesting places.
