Greenwich is an ideal base for exploring London and all its famous sites. You can hop on the bus right outside the campus, and be at Eltham train station is around 3 minutes. From here, the direct train line takes you to London Bridge in around 20 minutes. Total travel time is less than 40 minutes.

The Anglo programme includes several trips into the city and a visit to the Tower of
London.

There is also plenty to keep you busy in Greenwich itself! The Greenwich Day Explorer Pass gives you the chance to visit the famous Observatory, Cutty Sark and the National Maritime Museum.

At the weekend, there are full-day excursions to Windsor and Oxford.

In the evenings, there’s the opportunity to participate in talent shows, find new friends in speed dating, play bingo, test your knowledge in the weekly quiz and show off your dance moves at the disco.

Caring and Attentive Teachers and Staff

Our summer team have been selected for their experience in and suitability for working with young people.

Anglo centre mangers are responsible for ensuring the smooth-running of the programme and most have had many years of experience on summer courses.

Quite a few of our teaching staff have worked with us for several summers as well, and have been involved in developing the syllabus by contributing ideas they have tried and tested at centre.

We are also proud that many of our activity team are returners and that some move into management positions, using their experience to make the programme better and safer each year.
