Anglo Educational Tours is based in London, so this is a city that we know and love, and we want your students to love London too.
Whilst many Londoners themselves are still finding hidden gems in this city, we understand that professors and their students have extremely busy schedules, which is why we specialise in curating tailored week-long educational programmes for a vast array of faculties, in order for your students to experience the city and supplement their learning in a short amount of time.
Itineraries differ from group to group; however, we have created a model itinerary below, in order for you to get a taste of what a week of studying abroad in London with Anglo Educational Tours would be like.
All groups also benefit from 24 hour emergency assistance, free mobile phone for group leaders, and maps for all participants.

As check-in is not normally until 3pm, arrangements will be made with the hotel for you to leave your luggage in a secure baggage area. A pack containing maps, plus any pre-purchased travel cards, will be left at the hotel for the group leader upon arrival.

It will also give you a chance to ask any questions you may have.
