With its cosmopolitan atmosphere, affluent South Kensington provides a safe and stimulating environment for our students and is home to some of the UK’s finest museums and most distinguished academic and arts institutions.
Housed in an imposing Victorian townhouse, Duff Miller Sixth Form College sits opposite the Natural History Museum on broad, tree-lined Queen’s Gate, just five minutes’ walk from South Kensington underground station. The area, dotted with leafy squares, offers a variety of international restaurants, cafes and bars, while Piccadilly Circus, Regent Street and Trafalgar Square are all just a short tube ride away.
As the capital’s cultural heartland, the district is home to Exhibition Road which showcases some of the world’s leading arts, scientific and academic organisations. The Science Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum host vibrant exhibition programmes that challenge and delight millions of visitors every year.
Imperial College London and the Royal Colleges of Art and Music are inspirational institutions for those with a thirst for knowledge and creativity. Nearby, the majestic Royal Albert Hall, overlooking Kensington Gardens, hosts a diverse programme of live concerts, including the annual, world-famous Proms summer season of orchestral classical music.
