Limited space available. Please email for more information.

“Let every artist strive to make his flower a beautiful living thing, something that will convince the world that there may be, there are, things more precious more beautiful - more lasting than life itself.”
- Charles Rennie Mackintosh, 1902

The Arts and Crafts movement not only influenced Frank Lloyd Wright, but also shaped the work of Wright’s contemporaries in Europe and Great Britain. Enjoy exclusive access and curator-led tours of buildings and collections that represent the very best of the British Arts and Crafts movement.

The tour begins in London with a visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum; the William Morris Gallery, the only public gallery devoted to Morris’ life and work; and Red House, Morris’ Arts and Crafts home.

Then travel to the Cotswolds, where the Arts and Crafts movement flourished during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In the beautiful Lake District, glide across Lake Coniston on a Victorian-era steam engine boat to Brantwood, the home of the great Victorian critic and writer, John Ruskin, and explore significant buildings by C. F. A. Voysey and M. H. Baillie Scott.

The tour will conclude in Glasgow, birthplace of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, an early progenitor of the Modern movement. Glasgow has an enviable portfolio of internationally renowned museums and galleries.
