Hunday Manor

The Hunday Manor Country House near Workington has proved an excellent venue with great staff and facilities. Through years of experience we’ve found that splitting the course into two separate evening classes works the best. The groups are kept intentionally small. You are encouraged to bring your digital SLR with you. That way, you can practice and familiarise yourself by finding settings and trying techniques as we work through the flexible syllabus together.
