East Anglia: The Country Houses of Norfolk and Suffolk Study Trip Abroad
May 16–24 & June 6–14, 2023
Discover the bucolic eastern reaches of England, renowned for lush landscapes, spectacular manor houses, and sites serving as inspiration to generations of artists and authors. Once an ancient Anglo-Saxon kingdom, East Anglia today primarily comprises the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, the focus of our exploration of the region’s architecture and art. Beginning in the storied university city of Cambridge and concluding in the medieval village of Lavenham, our journey covers a fascinating assemblage of buildings, collections, and history. Brock Jobe, President of the Trust’s Board and Emeritus Professor of American Decorative Arts at Winterthur Museum, leads both tours with special assistance from Louisa Brouwer, the National Trust’s Cultural Heritage Curator for the East of England. Participants benefit from the insight of curatorial colleagues and the privilege of private and bespoke visits throughout. The grandeur of its houses, the richness of its fine and decorative arts heritage, the splendor of its vistas, and the camaraderie of fellow Trust travelers make this Study Trip one not to be missed.
