Kent

Nuestro centro de verano para adolescentes, Cobham Hall, se encuentra en el idílico condado de Kent, conocido como "El Jardín de Inglaterra".

Kent es un condado del sureste de Inglaterra. En la ciudad de Canterbury, la catedral de Canterbury tiene 1.400 años de historia, y cuenta con una cripta románica y vidrieras medievales. El Museo Romano de Canterbury, situado en el subsuelo, cuenta con mosaicos excavados. Whitstable, al norte, es una ciudad costera con casitas de colores y un mercado de pescado junto al puerto. Al este, junto a la costa, Margate alberga la galería de arte Turner Contemporary.

El programa de actividades múltiples de nuestra escuela miembro, Emerald UK, tiene lugar en lo que originalmente era una casa señorial inglesa del siglo XVI. Situada en la campiña de Kent, los estudiantes internacionales pueden disfrutar de un variado programa de emocionantes actividades dentro de la escuela en un hermoso campus que está a un corto viaje en tren del centro de Londres.

Las excursiones a la ciudad incluyen atracciones populares como el London Eye y la Torre de Londres. Guiados por nuestros líderes de actividades, los estudiantes explorarán sitios locales únicos como Canterbury y Rochester. Con fantásticas instalaciones de ocio, aulas bien equipadas y un cómodo alojamiento. Cobham ofrece una inmejorable experiencia de verano en el Reino Unido para estudiantes de 11 a 17 años.

Perfect for students!

There are lots of fun things to do for students of all ages in Kent. The coastal towns offer a more traditional view of England with a mix of both pebbly and sandy beaches, fun fairs, penny slot machines, fish n’ chips and ice creams of all flavours. Whilst Margate is perhaps the liveliest of the seaside towns, especially at night, towns like Whitstable, Broadstairs and Deal are prettier and packed with pubs bars and restaurants.

Wherever you go in Kent, you are never far from an art gallery, a cream tea and a country park to walk it off!
