There are underground and train stations all around, Kew Bridge, Gunnersbury, Acton Town and Ealing Common. This keeps ISL very well connected to central London and the surrounding boroughs - the unique cityscape of London really is an extension to the classroom, with regular visits to museums, galleries, and other areas of interest.
