Newly reopened after an absence of more than two years, Kelmscott Manor was Morris’ beloved country home and a great inspiration to him.

In September
Arts and Crafts in Sussex 7-9 September (based in Brighton)
Victorian Treasures of Yorkshire 16-18 September (based in Hilton Leeds City Hotel)
Discover South Yorkshire!
South Yorkshire was an economic powerhouse that has left a legacy of Victorian art and architecture that thrived when the region basked in its wealth built on its industry and mining. Civic pride as well as personal status inspired a host of wonderful buildings and the establishment of institutions that bear testimony to this vibrant period of the county’s history. This wonderful new tour looks at this legacy in the form of country houses, museums, galleries and civic architecture. For further details please visit the Travel Editions website: to check booking details etc

Our UK Travel Editions art tours normally include 2 full days sightseeing, with two lectures provided by Anne.
