The visitor experience: tourism and architecture in England during the long eighteenth century in the Department of History

Contact Mr Adam Whybrow


I studied my undergraduate degree in History at Durham University, and also obtained an MA from Durham in Early Modern History. My research explores the work of early modern English travel writers and their impressions of architecture, primarily English country houses, in the long eighteenth century. I am especially interested in how these travellers reacted, if at all, to these houses, and what architecture came to symbolise in a wider context to visitors in early modern England. I am supervised by Dr Toby Osborne and Dr Adrian Green.

Since October 2018, I have taught on the first-year module, ‘Early Modern England: A Social History’.
