Details

Wightwick Manor offers a fascinating insight into a house influenced by William Morris and his contemporaries. Surrounding the house is a beautiful Edwardian garden full of textures and colours all year. Tea Room & Gift Shop also on site.

This house of the Aesthetic Movement was, by 1937, a relic of an out of fashion era. Yet, so complete was the design that it was worthy of preservation. Having given the house to the Trust, Geoffrey and his second wife Rosalie became its live-in curators, opening the house to the public and adding to its contents. In particular they added a remarkable collection of Pre-Raphaelite paintings by Rossetti, Burne-Jones and their followers.

So take a step back in time and visit the ever-changing family home that’s also the world’s most unlikely art gallery. Surrounding the house is a beautiful Edwardian garden full of textures and colours all year. Tea Room & Gift Shop also on site
