Canaletto, London Westminster Abbey, with a Procession of Knights of the Bath


In five delightful walks, learn the crocketed, pinnacled highlights of Gothic – the style that dominated Britain from the 12th to the 16th century, before being revived in the 19th century. Architectural historian Harry Mount will take you through Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular Gothic – and the Gothic Revival. He will also explain the Norman style, which immediately predated the first Gothic buildings.


“Thanks for the new brochure for next season’s programme. It is most interesting and I will certainly be attending at least three courses; indeed it is difficult to decide which not to attend! You have got very good lecturers who have vastly increased my knowledge. Harry is phenomenal”
