Group Accommodation

Are you looking for a competitive alternative to London hotel accommodation? British Homestays are able to provide a friendly, welcoming family London homestay environment on a full board basis.

Our families are based on the outskirts of Croydon, in safe and quiet residential areas and close to main-line rail links to central London.  The families are regularly inspected and are experienced in the needs of visitors.  Special dietary requirements can be catered for.

A British Homestays representative will be on hand to meet your group and liaise with the host family both morning and evening.

Host families can accommodate 2 – 4 persons, where guests can be expected to eat with the family and integrate within the communal areas of the home.  If you would like information for ideas regarding to what to do in and around London view our “Places of interest page”.
