English houses and gardens: defining Englishness | Institute of Continuing Education skip to content

Institute of Continuing Education

Which defines Englishness best, the house or the garden? A combination of both. International influences adapted to the English climate and fostered their development by owners, talented architects and garden designers. We explore the works of Kent, Brown, Morris, Lutyens and Jekyll, and classical properties such as Stourhead, Sissinghurst and Highclere Castle.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.

Printable versions of our brochures are available to download from the Institute Publications page.
