The London Finishing Academy offers two outstanding courses set in the most luxury locations of either London or the Stately Houses of the English countryside. Both courses will appeal to women and men of all ages who are seeking a unique international etiquette and protocol education that cannot be found elsewhere. Our courses are completely bespoke and at the highest level, delivered within an immersive experience.

Both courses offer everything we believe our global client is looking for, but also far more. We are not an ordinary finishing school; you will not find any other courses with our curriculum or with our guest speakers.

London Finishing Academy Students


Our 5-day non-residential course takes place within one of the most prestigious hotels in London. The Goring Hotel, in Belgravia, is the only hotel to have been awarded the Royal Warrant by her Majesty the Queen, received in 2013. It is the closest hotel to Buckingham Palace and was indeed the hotel where The Duchess of Cambridge spent the night before her wedding in the Royal Suite. Imagine such an environment to study modern etiquette and life skills. The Academy not only offers the core etiquette modules that set the foundation, but also includes an array of elite guest speakers and trainers in one exclusive week of self-discovery and social development taught at the highest level.

This course is designed to attract women and men of all ages. The key skills you will learn are elevated life skills from which everyone will benefit from outside of a classroom, office or home.

Our student is both national and international, and with The Goring, a quintessentially English hotel setting the scene, you will feel confident in the level of education, experience and service you will receive from the moment you book to the end of your week with us. With tailor made and completely bespoke courses, that are unique to The London Finishing Academy, your choice to invest in your personal development with us is paramount.



Our 2 nights/ 3 day residential course is set in the stunning home and grounds of Somerley House, the location for the popular Netflix series, The Crown.

Home to Viscount and Viscountess Normanton, you will feel like you have stepped into the pages of history in these magnificent and regal surroundings. From the moment you arrive, you will feel like you are living the life of royalty. The house is exclusive to The Academy’s guests and therefore you have full and private access to take in the most inspiring beauty that the house has to offer. The residential course is fully inclusive with special menus for the fine-dining experience, afternoon tea and graduation lunch. Not only will you spend your time with creative and inspiring trainers and guest speakers, but you will also have time to take a tour of the grounds and make the most of your stay.

We want our guests to leave at the end, feeling elated by this life experience and education which has totally exceeded all expectations.

The 3-day residential course is designed to attract the discerning lady or gentleman who wishes to indulge in a unique self-development course with the addition of an unrivalled experience of staying in a stately home.
