Old Street Centre

Zone 1 London

Our most centrally located London summer language centre is located in Zone 1 and is just a short walk from Old Street tube station and fashionable Shoreditch. It doesn’t get much more central than this.

The Neighbourhood

The Zone 1 location of East Central House makes it ideal for exploring London by Tube or on foot. Old Street underground station is just a short walk from the accommodation. The area itself is considered one of the trendiest in London. Shoreditch is home to IT startups, artists, coffee shops, and the infamous Cereal Killer Cafe. Students are bound to appreciate the young, fashionable atmosphere of the area.
