Studying in London
The Piazza at Covent Garden
An essential element of LDA’s training are regular visits to museums, art galleries, historical sites and famous buildings round and about London. If you are to be involved in theatre training it is vital to have a clear sense of art, architecture and history.
To develop this sense LDA takes you to an extraordinary range of places; from the British Museum, (where you can see the sculptures of the Parthenon) to Westminster Abbey, where monarchs, poets, dramatists, scientists and the Unknown Soldier are buried.
Visits are also made to the National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery, Tate Britain, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Sir John Soane Museum.
All LDA students are automatically made members of the University of London Union (ULU). This is situated in Malet Street, a short walk from the London Centre. It will give you ample opportunity to socialise with other students in London.
In Trafalgar Square
A full range of social and cultural activities that stimulate the dramatic imagination are not only widely available in the city, but many are already included in your LDA fee. But visit London’s many museums, galleries, churches and historic buildings on your own or with friends.
