London & Notting Hill Gate
A feature on which students often remark is our location - Notting Hill Gate - both truly British and at the same time cosmopolitan, a home to politicians, celebrities and the internationally famous Notting Hill Carnival and Portobello Market. With around 110 different nationalities on our campus, the college mirrors this diversity while providing a truly British experience.
The nightlife is great with Notting Hill Gate's vast selection of clubs, bars, restaurants and pubs. Art and culture lovers may enjoy an evening out at the Gate Theatre or a local cinema.
London's famous landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Tower of London, Hyde Park, Tate Britain & Tate Modern, the London Eye, Madame Tussauds, the British Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum are some of the draws of living and studying in the city.
London is one of the world's most international and cosmopolitan cities. Alongside New York and Tokyo, London is a hub of the global economy.
London is both a historic capital and a hotbed of new ideas and innovation. It is a city of parks, culture and commerce, and is home to many world-renowned museums, galleries and famous buildings. It is a hugely exciting place to live and the area around the College has one of the lowest crime rates in London.
