Description

Much of Britain’s most beautiful architecture was created by the Georgians in the eighteenth century. This course reveals how the Georgians transformed Britain, from major cities like London, Bath, and Edinburgh to smaller towns like Blandford Forum. It explores the evolution of the town house, the careers of the great architects, the beauties of interiors, and the planning of towns. It highlights the glories of Georgian urban architecture, but does not ignore the crafts, from masonry to plaster-working, that made it possible.

Residential Fees From: £348   Non Residential: £233
