About the Homestay
I am an italian student living in Beckenham with my mother.
We have been living in London for more than 2 years and we can share with you our experience of moving in a new city.
Beckenham is a very pleasant suburb of London.We are about 8 mins walk to the train station (Elmers End) with trains directly into central London - London Bridge, Waterloo, Charing Cross and Cannon Street.There are also several bus stops near our house.
Beckenham is a lovely town which looks like a little central London offering many supermarkets, pubs, cafes and restaurants, leisure centre with swimming pool, and lots of small shops,parks and woods.
At home there is usually me and/or my mom but we are very busy so you are free to enjoy your stay.
We can provide you dinner at £5 per day.We can arrange it directly when you arrive.
