Collingham Gardens is a beautiful, Grade II listed building residing in a quiet and highly desirable area of London. It has bags of character, which is something you can’t help but notice on your approach – as you walk up the Victorian tiled entrance. Just a 15-minute walk away is Atlantic House, and Asa Briggs/Young Street – where you will have the majority of your lectures. You’ll find yourself very close to Earl’s Court tube station and the amenities of Earl’s Court Road, South Kensington Tube Station is also just 10 minutes away.
Courtfield Gardens is literally just a couple of minutes’ walk from Collingham Gardens. It’s not managed by Richmond University, but by a friendly company called Studio Let, who own the building and look after it very well. Just five minutes’ walk away are Earl’s Court Tube Station and the amenities of Earl’s Court Road, including familiar shops like Sainsbury’s, Boots and M&S. There’s also a gym five minutes away (part of Soho Gyms – the Earls Court branch), and a wellness centre and dentist.
