Au Pair in Britain
Smartaupairs offers the au pair in Britain program to European, Australian & New Zealand nationals.
Britain really has something to offer everybody; but young travellers and workers are particularly spoilt for choice!
A global trend-setting music and dance scene; great student/youth nightlife and many fantastic pubs, bars, and theatres; some of the world’s finest museums and galleries; cutting edge fashions and food - it’s all here. What’s more, many of the most enjoyable things are free – museums, galleries, public parks, picnics and outdoor events and festivals...so come and experience it for yourselves!
For the traditionalists, there’s a wealth of history, culture and ancient traditions to discover. Wherever you are based in Britain, you’ll never be far from something fascinating to explore and discover.
England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland all have fascinating and ancient castles, houses, royal residences, parliaments and landscapes to visit.
There’s also the chance to witness famous events, such as the races at Ascot, the annual Oxford and Cambridge boat race, London’s Notting Hill Carnival or the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, to name just a few...
Travel, make friends, feel at home.
The UK is an easy place to travel around - even on a budget; with plenty of bus and rail networks offering discounts for young travellers. It is easy to meet other people, and it is likely that there will be other au pairs working in your area. One of the best ways to find them is to enrol in a language course. Many courses are free of charge for EU Nationals, ask for the nearest EFL or ESOL courses, often organised in a local college by the local authority.
If you are interested in sport, you’ll find a fantastic range of activities available to you, including British favourites such as football, rugby, tennis, horse riding and sailing amongst others. Taking part in these types of activity is an excellent way of making friends – through a shared interest.
There you can discover more about your visit, buy maps, passes and tickets for where you are going, and sign up for a newsletter with all the latest information about Britain.
