Your Destination

The Academy is wonderfully located in the heart of Bloomsbury, an area renowned for its literary history, with Charles Dickens and Virginia Woolf being former residents. You are just a short walk from the British Museum, containing over 8 million works, documenting culture across the centuries.

London's mix of grandeur, history, style and culture seems to get more enticing by the year. It charms with leafy Royal parks, free world-class art galleries and frothy ale amid wood-clad pubs; it intrigues with ancient streets and grand architecture, and excites with the neon-lit West End, designer shopping and an innovative dining scene that has become one of the richest in the world.

The average London street transports you back centuries with its architecture, and across continents with its population. Brimming with iconic British emblems - the ubiquitous black cab; the Houses of Parliament's soaring limestone peaks - London unites a colourful history and solid traditions with boundary-pushing creativity and true multiculturalism. Whether exploring one of its glorious markets or taking it easy in a soft green park, expect to see faces from all corners of the globe.

Culturally, London is breathtaking, with its galleries and museums among some of the most prestigious and comprehensive on earth. From the natural wonders housed inside the ornate, terracotta façade of the Natural History Museum to the cutting-edge artists pushing boundaries inside the Tate Modern, a staggering number of London's cultural attractions are free.
