Royal Oak Lectures & Tours for FALL 2017

Welcome to the online home of The Royal Oak Foundation's FALL 2017 Lectures, Tours, Receptions and Study Visits.

Royal Oak lectures and tours are a vital part of the foundation's ongoing educational mission in the United States. Since the the series began, Royal Oak has planned and presented over 800 lectures by over 150 speakers in 60 different cities across the United States. Our FALL 2017 programs are made possible by The Drue Heinz Trust and additional support from the Marian Meaker Apteckar Foundation and an Anonymous Donor.

Royal Oak lectures, day trips and tours have been a significant benefit of membership for over 35 years. They foster a greater awareness of topics including National Trust properties and collections; British history; architecture and design; decorative and fine arts; preservation and conservation; landscape and garden history.
