Wightwick Manor & Gardens

Morris interiors

Wightwick Manor, Wolverhampton, West Midlands

Said to be the best remaining example of a house featuring interidesign and craftsmanship by a star-studded cast of the Arts & Crafts era, Wightwick has fabrics, wallpaper and furniture by William Morris, glass by Charles Kempe and ceramics by William de Morgan. Also Pre-Raphaelite paintings by Rosetti, Burne-Jones and others.

The gardens, designed by Thomas Mawson, are a rare example of the Arts & Crafts style and are listed on the English Heritage Register in their own right.
