Delicious International Dining in London

London has some of the most diverse food selections of any city in the world. Eat like an Englishman and try traditional fare such as “bangers and mash” and “fish and chips,” or taste international cuisine at Wagamama or Nando's. Shop for groceries and make breakfast in your suite. Experience your choice of different restaurants in the city for dinner. Your tuition includes 2 meals daily, and 1 on weekends.

Your Health + Safety are our Primary Concern

Our RCs are committed to the support and supervision of Summer Discovery students. Daily sign-ins and room checks are mandated for your safety. You are free to walk around the Olympic Village area of London (our ‘home area’) in small groups. If you have a question, RCs are on duty to help.

Not feeling well? Summer Discovery staff make all medical appointments, accompany students to medical facilities, obtain prescription medications, and notify parents after medical visits. Appointments are made with the London Doctors Clinic or University Hospital of London.
