Twickenham Luminaries: A Virtual Lecture Series

We have come across this very interesting series of lectures which were held back in September; however they are all accessible on YouTube.   The five lectures included places such as Orleans House Gallery, Marble Hill House, Strawberry Hill, Alexander Pope, his Villa & Grotto and Sir John Soane & J.M.W Turner's House.  All were well presented with about 20-25 minutes of detailed history followed by a Q&A.
