Calcutta House

Calcutta House is one the home of our art, architecture and design school. Our art students enjoy ease of access into London's creative and cultural quarter.

Old Castle Street
London E1 7NT

Internationally recognised for its excellent facilities, and described by our own Patrick Brill (AKA Bob and Roberta Smith, who teaches Fine Art here) as the "Aldgate Bauhaus", our location and facilities give students access to a world of cutting-edge equipment.

Calcutta House is located in one of the most exciting parts of the city. Our students at Calcutta House enjoy the local community and benefit from neighbours such as the Whitechapel Gallery, and Petticoat Lane, Spitalfields and Columbia Road markets. Located minutes from Aldgate and Algate East Tube stations, Calcutta House is served by the Circle, Metropolitan, District, and Hammersmith & City lines. Mainline train stations Liverpool Street and Fenchurch Street are a short walk away.
