Excursions

Our excursions are an important and enjoyable part of your course, and introduce you to important parts of the British way of life, our heritage and culture, and to some of the many beautiful attractions in Devon, one of the most popular holiday destinations in England.

We will take you on an all-day coach excursion each Saturday, with all entry fees included.

We visit such places as:

  • Tintagel and King Arthur’s Castle

Every Tuesday afternoon we will take you on a half-day coach excursion. We will take you down to the coast to sunbathe or have a swim, or up onto the moors for a walk in lovely countryside.

We visit such places as:

  • Torquay and the English Riviera

My husband and me would like to thank you for everything.  Matteo is enthusiastic for his life experience with you. He told us that he spoke English every day for many hours, and everyone were very friendly and welcoming. He received a great hospitality in his host Family, the best family that he has ever had. We think that this is the best study abroad trip he has ever done! All program perfectly succeeded. Now our daughter Chiara is studying in Exeter. We are sure that she will be very happy and satisfied too.
