London – Twickenham

The home of rugby

St. Mary’s University sits next to Strawberry Hill Castle, and is considered to be the oldest Roman Catholic university in the country, having been founded in 1850. It is about 45 minutes to the centre of London – and remember that Mick Jagger celebrated his birthday here!

A quiet, yet wealthy suburb of London, with trains that speed you to Waterloo and from there, all the major attractions of London await you.
