London and the Guildhall School

The Guildhall School enjoys a location in the very heart of one of the most exciting cities in the world.

Next door to the Silk Street building is the Barbican Arts Centre with its theatres, cinemas, concert hall, library and art gallery, home to such institutions as the London Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Symphony Orchestra. The Guildhall School is also within easy distance of the West End theatres, the Royal Festival Hall, National Theatre on the South Bank, the Globe Theatre, Tate Modern and all the major galleries.

There is an abundance of free entertainment on offer in London, and as a student, you are entitled to concessions on virtually all entertainment tickets, plus discounts in many shops and restaurants as well as major exclusive discounts on important items such as Tube and bus travel.

Sundial Court, the School’s hall of residence, is located in Chiswell Street, just around the corner from the Silk Street building. Sundial Court has 176 bedrooms in thirty-nine flats, each with either three, four, five or six bedrooms.

Each flat has a communal kitchen with dining area, shower room and separate toilet. Most bedrooms are large enough to accommodate an upright piano and are furnished to a high standard. All rooms are equipped with internet access. There is also a wheelchair accessible flat with a specially adapted kitchen and bathroom. There is also a Deaf Alerter system for the hard of hearing.

Music students may practise in their bedrooms during permitted hours. Local amenities, including supermarkets, bars, restaurants and sports facilities are all within easy walking distance. Two underground stations are within minutes of the residence. Underneath the accommodation is the Basement, which houses the School Bar, a self-serve laundry, practice rooms and a communal television room.
