Britannia Travel was established in 1997 as a student accommodation agency, which specialises in serving international students visiting London.

Whether the purpose of a student's visit is to learn English, to follow a vocational course at a college or university or simply to visit London's tourist attractions and places of cultural interest, Britannia can offer the ideal accommodation solution.

We are a truly international company and our multi-lingual staff has over 20 years experience in looking after visitors from all over the world. Most of us have lived in other countries and understand the challenges facing someone who has just arrived in a new city.

At Britannia, we are committed to offering the highest standard of student accommodation available and our large database enables us to provide our clients with the widest choice. For example, we offer 3 categories of Homestay in all areas of London (mainly zones 2-5).

London is our home and you can trust us to offer the best advice and ensure that a student's stay will be comfortable and enjoyable!

Our Accommodation Assessors are specially trained according to English UK criteria for selecting accommodation and visit all hosts personally before accepting anyone onto our books.

At Britannia we choose our hosts carefully to ensure that they treat students as a member of the family and can provide them with a friendly, comfortable and safe "home away from home".

Britannia Student Services meets the standards for registration with the British Council as a provider of homestay, private home, residential, hostel and independent self-catering accommodation for adults for accredited providers.

All our homestay accommodation complies with the ENGLISH UK Homestay Code of Practice


At Britannia we offer a walk-in facility at our offices, which are located just off Oxford Street, close to Tottenham Court Road underground station in the heart of London. If students should need any assistance whilst they are in London, they are welcome to call on us or visit our offices.

Our team is fully trained in student accommodation and welfare and languages spoken are Spanish, Italian, French, Portuguese and Hungarian.

We employ a certified English UK recognised student welfare officer
