English Study with Social Programme

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.

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.
