Back for 2020, this course will mix some favourite haunts with fascinating new destinations. As before, you will head off the beaten track to areas defined by, or possessing, a unique set of characteristics and evidence of human occupation over the past 5,000 years. Each day, you will learn about events, buildings, people, geology and topography, which combine to make these places so individual. You will explore churches for their monuments, stained glass, architecture and incomparable settings, and visit gardens and historic houses with great collections of paintings and furniture. The varied destinations, many of which will be unknown to you beforehand, will also encompass prehistoric sites, castles, villages and even the seaside.
