Take advantage of the low British Pound to book a last-minute English course at EC Bristol this summer! Only two hours from London, but offering much better weather, Bristol is famous for its lengthy maritime history. It has been an important port city for 1000 years, and this summer packed with events catering to every preference.
27th June – 10th July
Watch the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament live on Bristol’s Big Screen in the heart of Millennium Square!
