Duchy House

Duchy House has a superb location right in the heart of Central London, surrounded by Covent Garden’s theatres and just steps from the most interesting stretch of River Thames. From here you can stroll to Leicester Square, cross Waterloo Bridge for London’s South Bank cultural quarter and attractions like the London Eye. This recently refurbished London student accommodation houses The Courtauld’s students during term time, but opens its reasonably-priced doors to visitors in the summer months.

Duchy House offers 64 single rooms over four floors, most of which have the luxury of private bathrooms. To save even more cash you could opt for a room with access to shared facilities. You’ll have a bed, desk, wardrobe and mini fridge plus FREE wired internet access in the building. You can further keep your costs down by making use of the communal kitchen on each floor, which has a fridge, cooker and microwave. There are laundry facilities so you can pack light.


You couldn’t wish for a better location than Duchy House! You’ll find many of London's most popular attractions, theatres, nightclubs, restaurants, shops, museums and galleries within walking distance. Head to the nearby National Gallery in Trafalgar Square for your fix of culture, stroll along the banks of the River Thames towards the Houses of Parliament to take in amazing views, catch a show at one of the many Covent Garden theatres close by, or head into Chinatown for an amazing meal.
