Heritage Open Days this week end, recommend Royal Holloway College

Today, we toured parts of Royal Holloway college in Egham. We splendidly lunched in the famous Picture Gallery, surrounded by the paintings collected by the founder of the college, Thomas Holloway, in incredibly short space of time, between 1881 and 1883.

We visited the Chapel, the Boardroom, Dinning Room, Picture Gallery, and the two quadrangles. You too can do the same, this weekend Royal Holloway College is open for the Heritage Open Days. One of the pictures in the picture gallery was my Painting of the Week 5: The Railway Station by William Powell Frith. I hope my brief photo montage might convince you it’s a worthwhile visit this Sunday.
