Now in their fourth decade, the Victorian Society in America's Summer Schools, in Newport RI, and London, UK, provide in-depth study of the multi-faceted architecture and culture of the nineteenth century.
The courses include lectures by leading experts, site visits and guided tours. The programs are designed to allow students to see and do as much as possible. There is little free time during the programs, the pace is physically demanding, and there are many walking tours.
The Victorian Society in America sponsors the Summer Schools.
