International Exlibris Congress 2020
The Bookplate Society is pleased to host the 2020 FISAE congress at Cambridge
Our venue will be Churchill College, Cambridge, and we propose to take full advantage of the city's history and magnificent buildings
by arranging for small groups to take walking tours of the colleges and libraries. Groups will be organised by language, and we shall be seeking tour guides fluent in each language.
We are suggesting that, on the Wednesday, some participants coming from London might enjoy travelling from London to Cambridge by coach via Hatfield House in
St Albans, built for one branch of the Cecil family. The travel page has details of this.
On the Sunday at the end of the congress, we propose a coach trip to Burghley House (see below), the marvellous historic home of another branch of the Cecil family, the Earls and
Marquesses of Exeter. The coach will then take you to Central London.
During the congress a visit is also planned to
Audley End , a
fine old Jacobean house and gardens in Saffron Walden, Essex, just 21 miles (33km) from Cambridge.
