Seminar: The Architectural Heritage of Kent

Ref: C3744437

This course will look at the magnificent range of buildings to be found within the county of Kent. We will however just step over the border into the London suburbs to see several treasures which played an important part in the history of Kent such as the royal palaces of Greenwich and Eltham. We will see some examples of typical Kentish houses and how they give character to their village, town or country location.
