Morris to Mackintosh
Be immersed in the architectural and interior design legacies of William Morris and Charles Rennie Mackintosh to discover the genesis of the revolutionary Arts and Crafts movement.
Begin in London with a visit to Red House, William Morris’s Tudor Gothic home which he designed and decorated with the help of his Pre-Raphaelite friends. Travel through the idyllic Cotswolds to view the influence of the Arts and Crafts movement on fin de siècle architecture and interior design and visit Morris’s summer house, Kelmscott Manor.
Wander through the Lake District, famous as a haunt for 18th and 19th century poets and writers, to Blackwell House on the shores of Lake Windemere. Then, cross the border to Glasgow, the birthplace of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, to explore his famed Willow Tea Rooms, Queen’s Cross Church and Hill House, Mackintosh’s finest residential commission.
