From picturesque timber-framed houses to great monuments like St Paul's Cathedral, Tudor and Stuart architecture is some of the most impressive in England. This course looks at the full spectrum, including yeoman's houses, vast mansions like Longleat and Burghley, stunning university buildings, and the grandiose and sometimes bizarre churches of Nicholas Hawksmoor.
Philip Wilkinson is the author of many books on architecture and history. He wrote a series of books to accompany the BBC2's series Restoration and Restoration Village, and is the author of The English Buildings Book (published by English Heritage) and Fifty Architecture Ideas You Really Need To Know (Quercus). When not writing, he explores buildings ceaselessly, recording some of his discoveries on his blog (englishbuildings.blogspot.co.uk) and gives talks on architectural subjects.Back to List
