front-doorThe Arts and Business College of London (ABC London) is based in central London in an area called Bloomsbury.

This historical area is known all over the world for its literary, arts and cultural heritage. Many famous people have lived in Bloomsbury and visitors from all over the globe still visit today. ABC London is also close to London’s most visited attraction – the British Museum, adjoining the rear garden of our building.

ABC London was set up by a team of industry skilled academics to serve the UK, EU and International student community with the very best that the UK education has to offer. Background theory is essential to learning and understanding concepts, however we firmly believe that only relevant industry time-served staff are key to providing students with the skills necessary to gain their full potential.

ABC London do not employ tutors that have just passed through courses then enrolled straight into teaching, they must have relevant practical working experience in the area they intend to teach. This way, we can ensure that every one of our students benefit from their highly qualified and industry linked tutors, thus building a strong foundation for their future careers.

We are currently offering several courses at our lovely Bloomsbury building, with more advanced courses to be added in due course. If you are interested in enrolling on one of these courses, or in the future, do get in touch by going to the Contact Us page.

The location - Bloomsbury London

It is served by a dozen bus routes and by four underground tube stations, one of which (Holborn) travels directly to Heathrow International Airport, for flights to all over the world. Studying at our location in Central London is ideal for those students that are looking for a culturally enriching study experience. The capital city has world-renowned museums and galleries (most are free entry), as well as 5,000 restaurants to enjoy local and international food.

the-british-museumBloomsbury is well known for its creativity and literature, with Bloomsbury Publishing’s Head Office established there and a great many bookshops to explore. It has been home to many famous people in the past and contains areas of inspiration in its several parks; despite being a central location in London, Bloomsbury has many beautiful gardens. Furthermore, Bloomsbury is renowned for its architecture, from its Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian buildings to its Brutalist buildings (such as Brunswick Shopping Centre, a Grade II listed building). The college itself is housed in a five floor Georgian building, further displaying its heritage.


Bloomsbury has some of the oldest and most prestigious schools and colleges in the UK. This includes UCL Institute of Education, University of London, and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. There are also American University study centres based in Bloomsbury, such as the University of California, the University of Delaware, and Florida State University.

As well as being a creative place, Bloomsbury is medically prominent. Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital was founded in 1852, and on the very same road is the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine.


There are many places to have fun from bowling at All Star Lanes or getting immersed in reading at Skoob Books Shop, to exploring the variety of museums and galleries that include the British Museum, Charles Darwin’s Museum and Sir John Soane’s Gallery. Comedy and theatrical performances, as well as arts, music and heritage events are all sources of entertainment at the Bloomsbury Theatre and Bloomsbury Festival. And at each turn there are a range of coffee houses, restaurants and bars to whet your appetite.
