Jewels in the Crown: The Treasure Homes of England    NEW!

The eternal British country house has always evoked romantic imagery in the mind of the Anglophile. From Downton Abbey to Manor House, the country house has come to symbolize all that is English: from drawing rooms and cricket games to clotted cream teas on the lawn. If you love all things British, or are an aficionado of glorious architecture, join us for a tour of some of the most remarkable of England's treasure homes. We will look at the planning and decorative treatments of such magnificent homes as Arundel Castle, seat of the Dukes of Norfolk for over 700 years; Haddon Hall, a survivor of the medieval age; Charlecote Park, home of the Lucy family since the 12th century (where, according to legend, Shakespeare was caught poaching deer); and Kelmscott Manor, the home of William Morris, famous designer, poet, and philosopher. Whether you are an armchair traveler, an intrepid tourist, or a fan of the Royal Family, this lecture will increase your appreciation of the social and architectural history of the British country house.
