Hotels near the Wightwick Manor
Wightwick Manor is a Victorian masterpiece and one of the finest examples of the influence of William Morris and the Arts and Crafts Movement in England. Its vast gardens are also protected and worth a visit in their own right.
The stunning Victorian Edwardian garden of Wightwick Manor is a rare surviving example designed by Thomas Mawson, one of the leading landscape architects of his day. Inside the manor, the many original William Morris wallpapers and fabrics, Pre-Raphaelite paintings, Kempe glass and de Morgan ware help conjure up the spirit of the time.
The Arts and Crafts Movement was one of the most influential, profound and far-reaching design movements of modern times. It began in Britain around 1880 and advocated the reform of art at every level and across a broad social spectrum.
