The Attingham Trust is a British educational charitable trust. It offers specialised study courses, primarily for people professionally engaged in the field, on country houses, their collections and settings, and on the history and contents of English royal palaces. Detailed information on the courses for 2010 can now be found at their website.

Besides courses focusing on British housing, two courses seem particularly interesting for CODART members and other professionals interested in Dutch and Flemish art. The first of these is the Attingham Study Programme from 31 May until 8 June 2010. The main theme of this intensive course is to examine the development of the Dutch historic house, its collections, gardens and landscape setting, together with the challenges it faces in the present and future.
The second course, from 5 until 14 September 2010, is an annual course that focuses on the Royal Collection. It studies the patronage and collecting of the Kings and Queens of England from the 15th century onwards. The teaching includes lectures and tutorials, as well as visits to both the occupied and unoccupied palaces in and around London.
