Homestay accommodation is the perfect option for students who want to practise their English in a family environment. There is no one type of homestay family; some are families with young children, others have adult children who have left home. Single parents also offer homestay accommodation.

All the homestay families used by ICE have been carefully selected and are visited regularly by our accommodation partner in accordance with British Council regulations.

London is a diverse and multi-cultural city so our homestay hosts come from various cultural backgrounds. Some were born in Britain and others came here from other countries and now have permanent residency. If English is not their first language, we can assure you that all families will speak English to a high standard and will speak English in the home.

Homestay accommodation is organised for ICE by a partner agency.


You can either book a single room or, if you are travelling with someone else, a twin room.


Homestays are available all year round, check in and out can be any day of the week and there is no minimum stay. London Homestay accommodation exists in zone 2 to 5.  ICE does not provide homestay families in zone 1, central London.  


Prices depend on the location of the homestay and the meal plan. You can either book a single room, or if you are travelling with someone else, a twin room.

Cleaning & Laundry

The host family will clean the room on a weekly basis and provide clean and ironed bed linen and towels. You will be able to do your laundry once or twice per week (to be arranged with the host). Drying and ironing facilities will also be available.  

There is an accommodation booking fee of £55 per student
