Many students ask for private tuition as gifts for their family and friends, however, they want a more special space. Other students like to learn in a venue that isn't a village hall.
Tuition fees at these venues are increased due to greater costings than local village halls.

We offer 3 Premier Venues:
1. Charlton Park, Bishopsbourne, Nr Canterbury, CT4 5JA
This Grade 2 listed mansion is just a few minutes south of Canterbury. The Regency Ballroom is an imposing room with a barrel vaulted ceiling, large bay windows, fine piped plaster mouldings, a wood burning stove and a Bechstein grand piano. The Ballroom was added to the mansion in the early 19th century to enable the visiting Prince Regent (George IV) to dance with his mistress, Lady Conyngham. The Ballroom overlooks the mixed borders, wood and parkland set within over 100 acres. Verbal tradition asserts that due to a bet at a party at which George IV was present, a white horse was jumped out of one of the ballroom windows.

3. The Assembly Rooms, Preston Street, Faversham, Kent, ME13 8PG.
These Victorian Assembly Rooms were first built in the 1830s. It was a gathering place for the higher social classes and open to members of both sexes – an especial boon to single ladies who otherwise could not socialise outside the home. For many years the rooms were a great success, hosting a variety of important events, including a dinner held by the Lord Mayor of London to celebrate the arrival of the railway to the town.
