Kelmscott Manor and Buscot Park

Kelmscott Manor in Gloucestershire was William Morris' summer home.  It contains an important collection of furniture and furnishings created by Morris as well as drawings and objects designed by his associates such as Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Edward Burne-Jones and Philip Webb.  The Manor, with barns, dovecote and attractive country garden, is set amongst meadows close to the River Thames. On arrival we will have coffee and an introductory lecture followed by a free-flow tour of the house.  After lunch in the delightful tearoom and shaded garden, the coach will take us a short distance to Buscot Park, a change of scale with its extensive park surrounding a large eighteenth century house.  This houses the Faringdon Collection of furniture, art objects and paintings by artists including Rembrandt and, continuing the Pre-Raphaelite connection, Rossetti and Burne-Jones.
