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.
