London is a multicultural city with a thriving nightlife scene. We have many attractions on our doorstep, from the London Eye (a short bus ride from the school) to Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the British Museum. We also have a beautiful park only a 10 minute walk from the school.

The way that it works is that you put money on your card. You can do this at a shop that has the Oyster Card logo, or at any train or tube station. You can put a travelcard on this too.

The quickest way of travelling around London is by tube. The school is located in Zone 2. A Zone 2-3 travel card for a month is £92.60. A bus pass for all zones for a month is £80.70.

All you need to do is go to a docking station. You can find out where these are by going to the transport for London website. You need to have a debit card so you can pay.
