Have visited three times and still enjoy this lovely house. Full of character and fantastic Arts and Crafts pottery, paintings and glass. On our second visit there was a lady playing the piano in the main hall - what a lovely addition to our visit! Have taken both mums who also thoroughly enjoyed it. Nice place for a picnic in... More

We visited on the free heritage weekend but I would pay to visit. With it being free it was quite busy but still accessible. We had to wait to get into the house but had a bit of a history of the house talk so it didn't seem to long. The manor itself in most parts felt like a comfy... More

We visited Wightwick Manor and Gardens on the 13th September which was a free National Heritage Day. From start to finish it was an excellent experience and I would highly recommend to anyone. It was quite busy when we arrived, but there was still plenty of parking available. The 3 min walk from the ticket office to the manor soon... More

Also, of course the William Morris textiles, they never get boring.The tea room... More

We have been several times this year with the boys...( 2 and 3) and they love it. The gardens are lovely if it is dry and they have a great cafe to take the boys into if it is wet. Well worth a 3 hour visit or 4 with a picnic.

A glorious study in social history and a wonderfully ornate house. The guides (NT) were very knowledgeable and helpful and it was interesting to see how this echelon of society lived. There was a tearoom and souvenir shop and plenty of parking space. Would recommend a visit.

The gardens are beautiful. Lovely place to picnic as well as a delightful tea room. The house itself is stunning and the staff were pleasant, helpful & knowledgable. We visited with our 3 month old daughter & the staff offered us a safe place to leave the buggy, and either a hippichick or baby carrier for her. The pre-raphealite collection... More

Having passed this house many times on the canal, we decided to make a proper visit one afternoon in late August. It is, quite simply, a gem. A house, not at all "old", as it was only built in the late 19th century, but designed within and packed with an astonishing array of both pre-Raphaelite and Arts & Crafts styles... More
