Pearson College London is based in Holborn - that's Central London, about as central as it gets. Why is that so good?

Well, if you have an interest in Pearson Business School, our campus is right down the road from some of the biggest names in the world such as Google, IBM, PwC and Saatchi and Saatchi. If Escape Studios is your thing, we are super close to huge visual effects studios such as Framestore, Union VFX and DNEG.

So, that's the cool stuff, but if you really want to study at Pearson College London, there's so much more that London has to offer that you NEED to know about!

Step 1: Food

Why is food step one? Well because it's the most important thing, obviously! And good news, because Central London has thousands of eateries: large chains and small, that you can pick from.


If you're feeling cheeky, there's a Nando's 3 minutes on foot from Pearson College London.


If you're willing to walk for two more minutes, you will reach Wagamama, everyone's favourite Japanese cuisine.


Leon is a natural fast food restaurant with the idea of providing fast food that is healthier than traditional fast food stores. And, it's next to Wagamama so only five minutes away.


If burgers are your thing and you've got a little time, visit Byron Burger. This is a 4 minute walk from Pearson College London and a great place to enjoy a freshly made burger with friends or colleagues.


If you're looking for something a little simpler, Eat is the perfect pace to get baguettes, toasties and paninis. They do good coffee too!


If you fancy something healthier, Pod could be the place for you. Pod has fresh dishes, salads and all sorts of vegan options if you're having a detox.

Echo Pizza

This is an independent pizza restaurant with super cheap pizzas for students! This is a 2 minute walk from Pearson College London and a great place if you fancy dough but don't have much doe.
