The City: London, England
London is a truly global city, one of the most exciting places on earth. It is one of the few capitals in the world that acts as a center for the arts, media, government, finance and commerce. The program will be held in the facilities of the Foundation for International Education - FIE, a five-storey Edwardian mansion located in the South Kensington district of London. The FIE study centre is in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, one of the most vibrant and exclusive areas of central London, just a few minutes from the Gloucester Road Underground station, and very close to Imperial College, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum, and the Royal Albert Hall. Also, very near the study centre and dormitories is Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens which together cover 635 acres of greenery, that include Serpentine lake and Long Water, where it is possible to row and swim in the summer. Other London attractions include the open air theatre at Regent's Park, the street life of Covent Garden, the theatre district of Shaftesbury Avenue and Piccadilly, the clubs of Soho, and the exotic restaurants of Chinatown and Charlotte Street. There are many world-renowned sites in and around London, including Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, Tower Bridge, Big Ben and many more!
