From Morris to Mackintosh
Discover the fin de siècle Arts and Craft movement through the interior design and architectural legacies of William Morris and Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Begin in London with a visit to the Red House, the Tudor Gothic home designed by Morris. Travel on into England’s Cotswolds, where stately homes display the influence of the Arts and Craft movement and explore Morris’s country estate of Kelmscott Manor. Continue to the Lake District, famous for its 18th and 19th century poets and writers, and admire Baillie Scott’s Blackwell House, perched above Lake Windermere and still furnished with its original late 19th century decorative features.
Journey over the border into Glasgow, birthplace of architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Enjoy a traditional afternoon tea at Mackintosh’s Willow Tea Rooms, and explore the Glasgow School of Arts and Hill House, Mackintosh’s finest residential commission.
