Arts and Crafts Tours

We are inviting our US Patrons to join a very special tour of England's finest collections featuring major works by our founders, George Frederic Watts OM RA and Mary Watts. Led by expert Elaine Hirschl Ellis, this bespoke itinerary offers you behind-the-scenes tours, visits to private homes rarely seen by the general public, and dinners in the company of curators and art historians.

The week's highlights include an afternoon and evening at Watts Gallery - Artists' Village, hosted by the Director and the Brice Chief Curator; a private visit to the Palace of Westminster; a private tour and two nights at Eastnor Castle; a private dinner at Lord Byron's former residence, Bryron's Chambers at Albany; a talk by John Singer Sargent's great nephew, Richard Ormond CBE; and a tour and dinner at Sir W S Gilbert's house in Kensington.

This trip is available exclusively to US Patrons of Watts Gallery Trust.
