Life at the School intro

Guildhall School is located in the heart of London, one of the most exciting cities in the world. Training in music, drama and production arts in this culturally-rich and dynamic environment is a unique experience.

With West End theatres, the Southbank Centre, Covent Garden’s Royal Opera House all close by, Guildhall has an array of world-renowned cultural institutions on its doorstep.

As a student, you will be entitled to concessions on virtually all entertainment tickets, plus discounts for shops, restaurants and public transport. For students from abroad, we provide guided tours and excursions to help you find your way around. Other major European cities are easily accessible by train or plane.

Our neighbourhood: Culture Mile

Our campus is situated in Culture Mile, a vibrant cultural hotspot in the City of London. This major destination for culture and creativity stretches from Guildhall School and the adjacent Barbican Centre to LSO St Luke’s and the Museum of London. Culture Mile offers a range of impressive performance and exhibition spaces all within walking distance, and exciting collaborative opportunities. Nestled on the edge of the popular areas of Shoreditch and Clerkenwell, we are close to some of London’s most famous landmarks, including St Paul’s Cathedral, the Gherkin and the Shard.
