However, please note that part of this guide is intended for undergraduate students studying abroad in London during the school year.

London Guides & City Websites

Suggested books: If you would like to purchase a travel guide about the United Kingdom and/or London specifically, we suggest the travel guides by Lonely Planet. These books can be found in most bookstores, through Amazon, or the Lonely Planet website.

Travel while in London

You will have weekends to travel outside of London. If you choose to do so, you should consider traveling with others, and leave your itinerary with your faculty director or other students who are staying in London. We also suggest letting your parents or emergency contacts back at home know where you will be traveling. Letting others know where you will be (including hostel or hotel information) at all times is a best practice for traveling in case of emergencies and for your safety.
