Great place to study, relax and explore Kent and London
Our Kent English language school is situated at Rochester on the North Kent coast.
Rochester is a town with a long history dating back to the Romans who first established a fortress on the site of the present castle. The castle that exists today is one of the best-preserved examples of a Norman fortress in England. The 900 year old cathedral which sits adjacent to the castle also contains Norman touches but has been much modernised during its history.
Rochester is also notable for being where Charles Dickens spent his youth with many of the buildings featuring in his novels.
A pleasant coastal town in which to study, Rochester is also a great base to explore Kent. Popular Kent seaside destinations close to our Rochester base include Broadstairs, Ramsgate and Whitstable.
Popular places to visit near by include Canterbury, with over 2,000 years of history, the remarkably well preserved Leeds Castle and Royal Tunbridge Wells.
Rochester is also a perfect base to explore the city of London with all its diverse culture and attractions.
