London has to be one of the world’s ultimate destinations. With so many attractions and so much to do, London has become a focal point for many travelers worldwide. Whether your interests lie in fashion, history, or the arts, London has something for everyone and with many ways of getting around the city, they’re all within reach. The most important thing to remember while in London is to make the most of it!
Historic London has many things to offer, including walking tours, night tours, and for a unique experience, the London Eye offers a tour of London from 135 meters in the air. Visiting the Tower of London offers a look into the history of the royal family of England, and even a look at the Crown Jewels. There are many tours geared toward seeing the highlights of historic London. On some of these tours, it’s possible to see Westminster Abbey, The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, Downing Street, Buckingham Palace, and Trafalgar Square all in one day.
From hit stage shows in the West End, tours into the history of theatre in England, to museums galore, those interested in the arts have an abundance of places to visit and things to see in London. It’s easy to spend an entire day observing over two thousand works of art in the National Museum, home to art from as far back as the 13th century, by legendary artists such as, da Vinci, Rembrandt, and Van Gogh. With art by Dali, Warhol, and Picasso, it’s no wonder that the Tate Modern Museum is the most popular destination in London for admirers of modern art. After a day visiting museums, any number of West End shows, ballets, or operas offer a fun and leisurely nighttime attraction.
Besides English history and art, London also offers a wide variety of other museums showcasing anything from natural history to tennis. Taking a journey from the beginning of time and into the future is as easy as visiting the Natural History Museum. The museum follows Earth and all living things on Earth through their changes throughout history with lifelike and interactive exhibits. Another option is The Science Museum of London. The Science Museum is made up of seven floors of exhibits and also has an IMAX 3D theater. It boasts free admission to the museum, but admission to the IMAX Theater and some of the interactive exhibits is not included. World famous Wimbledon stadium is open for tours throughout the week and includes a museum on the grounds. Also, most sports stadiums for cricket, rugby and football offer tours of their facilities when games aren’t in progress.
Nightlife in London can be quite an experience. London is certainly not lacking in late night venues, and one can be found to suit most anyone’s taste. Most are open until very late (or very early) and many serve food far into the night. London’s nightlife offers anything from quiet, classical atmospheres, to full-blown nightclubs.
With so many forms of public transport, getting around in London is quite simple. With its 12 different lines and free maps at most stations to help you on your way, the Tube system is an easy and affordable way to travel throughout the city. The Tube system is great for travel, but can get rather crowded during rush hours. If taking the Tube becomes a hassle, city buses are a fun way to see the city. Tickets are required for some buses, but can be purchased at the bus stop. A great tool to have for travel in London is an Oyster Card. Up to 90 pounds can be stored on an Oyster card, to be used toward travel on buses, the Tube system, trams, and National Rail services. Using an Oyster card makes travel in the city much faster and easier and is usually cheaper than paying for each trip individually.

The TEFL course in London is internationally accredited, and the TEFL certificate you earn on completion will enable you to work in the UK or elsewhere around the world. Our London TEFL course centre is located in the heart of the city, just a step away from everything that makes London so famous. The London TEFL school is located in the London borough of Southwark, in one of the most attractive areas of the city.
The TEFL school itself is in a beautiful, four-storey building, very close to London Bridge and Borough stations. Public transport is widely available, with only a three-minute walk from London Bridge mainline and underground stations. The TEFL training centre is located very close to thriving restaurants, cafe bars, universities, colleges and shops. At TEFL in London, you are only about a five-minute walk away from The London Dungeon, and approximately 15 minutes from Southbank with all its attractions:
The London Eye, the Houses of Parliament, the busy nightlife of Leicester Square, shopping, museums, the theatre district – all this and more is in walking distance of the center, or easily reached by bus, tube, or taxi if you prefer. Canary Wharf - a large business, office and shopping centre - and City Airport are only a short distance away by Jubilee tube line.
We use local non-English-speaking students for the TEFL course teaching practice. Our students are extremely keen and enthusiastic and come to classes purely because they want to – perfect students for a TEFL teacher-training course!
We can offer you a number of different options for accommodation during your TEFL course in London. You may want to choose a hotel or hostel, or you may want to stay in a single room or in a dorm, together with other London tourists. Alternatively, you may prefer to stay in private accommodation: either a room or a shared flat, which is usually the most inexpensive accommodation option in the city. Please bear in mind that some apartments may require a refundable security deposit.
You may want to find accommodation in the city independently, or we can arrange it for you. Should you not be familiar with London, the latter option would certainly be easier, safer, more reliable, and would save you a lot of time. Once you’ve confirmed your place on a TEFL course in London, you can contact the TEFL school direct with your housing requirement as soon as you can. They will take your preferences and requirements into consideration and do all they can to find the accommodation you’d prefer.
