London is a big city, and is divided into 6 "Zones". Zone 1 is closest to the centre, and Zone 6 is furthest from the centre. St Giles London Central is in Zone 1. It is very unusual to find homestay accommodation in Zone 1, and therefore the majority of our homestays are in Zones 3-5. If you are studying English at London Central, you can live in Zone 1 if you choose one of our student residence or hotel options.
