Now you have completed your registration, and as the London A Cappella International Summer School is a non residential course, it is important you find a place to stay during your time in London! We have negotiated a wide range of favourable accommodation packages to fit within different budgets: from studio apartments and hotels to student halls of residence and hostels. Please also see the map below and location guidelines so you can judge how far it will take you to get to the venue – Kings Place – each day.
These recommendations are based on a 5 night stay from Thursday 31st July (the day of the course registration) through to Tuesday 5th August (the day after the course finishes). If you wish to extend your stay - either arriving earlier or staying later – then this will be subject to availability and need to be arranged directly with your chosen accommodation provider. If you wish to book with one of our accommodation partners, please contact them using the details below in order to receive the favourable rates we have negotiated on your behalf.
DISCLAIMER The London A Cappella International Summer School does not accept responsibility if the allocation at an accommodation option is full. Any payment disputes are to be resolved directly with the accommodation partner.
MORE INFORMATION If you require any more information, please see our website or email the summer school at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to help!
