English Study Courses with Social Programme at Link School of English
Study English and have a good time in London!
London is one of the most interesting towns in the world – make to most of it!
You can enjoy London attractions, make friends and practise English with our after-school activities. Many activities run in our English school are free of charge as we are trying to keep the costs reasonable. Some activities are paid to cover travel fairs or costs of tickets. Our Social Programme is a great way to combine your English study with visiting London attractions.
Our Social Programme Activities include:
London Walking Tours
Our walks, depending on the route, may include the following London attractions: Big Ben, St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Downing Street, Tower of London, London Bridge, The Shard, Trafalgar Square, Greenwich, Southbank, Covent Garden, Harrods, Marble Arch, Hyde Park, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford Street.
Sometimes we also join themed walks and tours such as ‘Harry Potter’, ’Royal London and Changing of the Guard’, ’Secrets of Westminster’, ’ Jack the Ripper!’, ‘London food tour’. At other occasions we may go for alternative London tours with some surprises and things that you won’t find in the guide book in Camden, East End and other places off-the tourist track.
Link School Socials
Going out with other students and teachers is always fun! We meet up locally in west London as well as in the town centre. Our typical school outings include:
- Drinks in local pubs
- Tea Parties
- Quiz and Games Nights
- Table tennis
- Meals in restaurants or English pubs
- Different celebrations at the school
Boat Trips on Thames in London
The boat trip is the perfect and most relaxing way to spend a sunny day in London and see the town from a different perspective.
The route starts at Westminster, near Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, passes near the ladmarks like: London Eye, Tate Modern, Canary Wharf, the Tower of London and ends at the Royal Palace of Greenwich. This is a guided tour where you can find out interesting facts about London.
International Food Day
International Food Day is one of our students’ favourites at our English centre. Our international students prepare and bring dishes and different foods from different countries to share with others. A great occasion to meet new friends and share your favourites.
An Evening in the Theatre
Our theatre outings include visits to local theatres in Ealing, Chiswick and other parts of west London, West End musicals, classic plays, concerts and dance shows. We visit famous venues such as Royal Albert Hall or the Globe, the Shakespeare’s theatre.
These activities may include: drawing classes, collage and assemblage classes, traditional paper making and book making, history of art. They welcome students of all abilities and you don’t need to be an artist to join, the aim is to do something creative together.
Our art classes are run by professional art tutors or practising artists and are often open not only to our English language students but for all.
Picnic in the Park
During the summer one of the options is to spend a day outside of the doors and enjoy one of the London beautiful parks such as Hyde Park, Regent’s Park or the green fields of Greenwich.
What if it rains? Well, we live in London, so we are prepared for the event that the weather is not always reliable… We won’t let it to spoil our plans to have fun, we will just go to a near pub or cafe and enjoy great company!

With London open bus tours you can see all major London attractions and experience the famous landmarks of London without getting exhausted by walking. There are two options of this trip – daytime and night, both providing unforgettable experience.
For our English Study with Social Programme we try to select films that will bring up a discussion or films about British culture. Screenings are followed by discussions on the film. The film Club meets at the school and sometimes we also join outer film meetups.
