Studying in London? Here are 5 spots for dinner with a view!

I think we can all agree that London has some breathtaking views; particularly during the evenings when the city lights up. And what better way to take in these views than by enjoying a great dinner in the heart of the city and sampling the varied cuisines the capital has to offer. Here is a round up of my top 5 dinner locations in London with stunning views of the city!   1.) The Shard, 32 London Bridge Street One of the best known spots for dinner in London with panoramic views of the city. The Shard boasts a number of culinary delights under one roof. The location has some of the best views of the city as restaurants are located within London’s tallest building. There are restaurants here to suit everyone’s taste, from British classics to Chinese cuisines and more. The views of the city at sunset and night make any of the restaurants a great choice particularly for special occasions. PS. This would make a great suggestion for a celebration with friends after completing your course at EC London 30+!   2.) Big Easy, London Canary Wharf Another great location with views of London’s Canary Wharf. Big Easy serves up a BBQ inspired menu with plenty of seafood options too. There’s also a pretty cool bar! Diners here are treated to a stunning view of the river below as well as the impressive buildings in London’s financial district.   3.) Heron Tower, Duck & Waffle/Sushi Samba Situated close to London Liverpool Street is Heron Tower, in which you can find 2 different but equally great restaurants. Sushi Samba is popular as it brings together a range of world cuisines under one roof. The restaurant is located across the 38th and 39th floor, which gives an epic view of … Read more

New intern at EC London 30+

Hi, I am Deanna, I’m 23 years old and I’m a student. I come from the State Tourism and Hotel Management School Switzerland.  I’m here at EC London +30 to do an internship, it is an experience that is helping me to improve my professional skills and the use of the language. In the past I worked in many sectors like welfare, administration, accountancy and soon on. And now I begin my adventure in tourism. I started to love travel and everything that it represents when I was a child. I remember my first solo trip, I went to Germany to learn the language, it was an experience that permitted me to grow mentally. I am a bit of an introverted person, but the team of EC are very helpful and friendly, and I hope to learn all that I can from them. After my internship I have already “organised” my possible next destination, it will be Scandinavia, and my dream is to visit all the cold nations by boat with my family, the problem is that they don’t like the cold, but I’m sure I can convince them ?. Something about me: clearly, I love travel, but my main difficulty is that I need to organise everything in minimum details, and consequently I can’t live the experience 100%. But on the other hand, I am a person dynamic and I need to have something to do, I can’t stay still. In fact, one of my favourite sports activities is walking. When I’m alone or bored I take my bottle of water and I go around. While during my typical Sunday I like to draw, I’m not a real artist but that relax me. Thanks for reading, Deanna ?   Ready for this adventure EC London 30+

The Lion King

Hello everyone, hope all of you are enjoying London and its surrounding ! On the 18th of June, EC London students had the great pleasure to enjoy some of the beautiful art, London city has to offer. Bright colours, mesmerizing and powerful singing and of course great acting. Twenty of our students had the chance to reminisce about childhood memory for 2 hours and 30 minutes, with The Lion King Musical at Lyceum Theatre. This musical was for us a great way to meet again our childhood friends, Simba, the famous duo Pumba and Timon, as well as chatty bird, Zazu. The Lion King musical was inspired by the original Disney movie The Lion King; indeed, we followed the journey of the little lion Simba, son of the lion king, Mufasa. It will take a long way for Simba to eventually succeed to his father after his death. I can say that I had goosebumps from the first second the musical started with the famous song, “circle of life” and all the majestic animals coming together as one on the stage. I can assure you that our students experienced all stage of emotion starting with laughter thanks to Zazu and the wise monkey Rafiki. The excitement and the satisfaction could be felt as soon as the curtains went down with the large crowd cheering along with the last melody of African percussion. If you are a theatre lover or would like to have your first theatre experience with EC 30+ London, make sure to join the EC London family my dear friends.
