European Art Tour 2012
In June 2012, Charles and Cecilia Peer and Dave and Cindy Andrus led a group through England. We flew to London and spend the first five days exploring both Tate museums, St. Paul's Cathedral, the London Eye, the National Gallery, St. Martins in the Field, and Westminster Abbey. We also took a day trip to Kelmscott Manor and the Cotswolds. Then we moved to our new home, Harlaxton Manor, an hour north of London outside the town of Grantham. We loved staying in this beautiful estate and exploring, painting, photographing and enjoying the manor and countryside. From Harlaxton we took several day trips to York, Castle Howard, the town of Lincoln and it's castle and cathedral, and a tour of Cambridge. After a free weekend (students chose from several options) we returned to London for two more nights and sights such as Victoria & Albert Museum, Harrod's, Design Museum and the Tower of London and a night at the theater.
