Private tour of Cheltenham College

Date(s) - 19th Feb 2020

Cheltenham College


The Friends are very fortunate that Rachael Merrison, Records and Heritage Manager of Cheltenham College, has arranged a private tour of Cheltenham College site focusing particularly on the art, architecture and history of the buildings.
Our morning will begin with a talk at 10:00 by Nick Nelson, Head of History of Art, in the famous chapel. Many of you will know him from his fascinating coffee morning talks for us. He has also written a new booklet about the chapel. He will talk for about an hour followed by a 30-minute tour around Thirlestaine House and the wider College site led by Rachael.
We hope to be able to provide some simple refreshments at the end of the morning but that is still to be confirmed.
Places are limited so please book as soon as possible.
The site is mostly flat but there will be a few steps and the ground can be uneven in places. If you have any special requirements, including disabled access, please let us know.

Group Leader: Sue Pearce
09:45: Meet at the entrance to the chapel.
