It has kept to Sir Francis' original attention, but the fields of study have widened to include many other activities. The President of Queen Alexandra's House is Her Royal Highness, Princess Alexandra, who is the great granddaughter of Queen Alexandra. HRH Princess Alexandra has been president of Queen Alexandra's House Association since 1956 and continues to play a valuable role in the artistic and intellectual life of those who stay at Queen Alexandra's House.

Queen Alexandra's House is centrally located next to the Royal Albert Hall in South Kensington, near several arts and music colleges including the Royal College of Music, Imperial College and Royal College of Art. QAH is convenient for buses and underground (view map), and within easy travelling distance of many colleges, theatres, museums and art galleries.

QAH is ideal for those new to London and keen to experience life in the capital, whilst benefiting from living in a comfortable environment. We provide fully catered, managed accommodation for women students studying within the Estate of the 1851 Commission, a stepping stone between school and complete independence.
