Our Art & Architecture Bulletin is now available


ACE is delighted to present highlights from our upcoming programme of tours exploring art and architectural history in the UK, Europe and further afield. From tours focusing on individual artists and art movements, to explorations of regional art collections, and opportunities to go behind closed doors at historic houses, the coming year promises a rich and varied array of experiences for art and architecture enthusiasts.


We look forward to returning to classic destinations for art lovers, including the Renaissance cities of Florence and Venice, the Côte d’Azur with its exquisite galleries and chapels, and Amsterdam, home to fine Old Masters. As well as visiting the breathtaking sites that made these destinations famous, ACE aims to delve below the surface, interspersing itineraries with visits off the beaten track. 


All tours led by experts in their field, and over the coming year we look forward to some brand new itineraries built upon our Tour Directors’ specialist academic research: a tour exploring the Young Poland art movement with award-winning curator Julia Griffin, and an exploration of Modern art, architecture and design in Yorkshire with leading architectural historian Alan Powers.


We are pleased to present a wide-ranging collection of tours taking place across the UK, exploring subjects from art collections in Glasgow to heritage properties on the Isle of Wight, and stained glass in East Anglia to private country houses in Northern Ireland. For those looking to travel further afield, a brand new tour exploring the remarkable art collections in the US cities of Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington promises to be a highlight of the 2024 calendar.
