Any one who is interested in the hidden gems of London; it's lesser knows historical buildings, and unique small exhibitions, this is for you! This private tour with art historian Mariska Beekenkamp-Wladimiroff will include visiting the Neo-gothic mansion on the Embankment build for William Waldorf Astor, and a visit to the exhibition: Sussex Modernism, which will have opened only the week before. Astor had emigrated to England in 1891 and, as arguably the richest man in the world, he spared no expense on the work for Two Temple Place.
During the course of 5 lectures and over 1500 years of German history we will encounter some of the Germans (and their adversaries) that changed the face of the world for ever. Students will certainly be familiar with the likes of Martin Luther, Frederic Handel or Bismarck, but how about Emperor Barbarossa (Redbeard), King Frederick II or the explorer Alexander von Humboldt? Illustrated by the art and architecture of each period, these lectures will give students a comprehensive insight into the making of the German nation and its huge impact on the history of Europe.

After hybernating over the Winter and doing necessary maintenance, most historic houses re-open during the Spring. Starting in April, after the Easter Holidays, I will be running a series of Private Visits to Historical Houses in SW London.
