Hello, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Whilst many National Trust properties do now allow internal amateur photography we have been limited by the terms of loans from other major institutions as well as private individuals who have loaned items for display in the Manor. These terms prevent any photographs not authorised by themselves as the... More

This Victorian house had connections to pre-Raphaelite artists and had William Morris wallpaper in excellent condition. The hall in the later part of the house was impressive. I'm sure that I would have given 5 stars if I only had more knowledge of/ interest in the particular era. Staff were (as always at national Trust properties) very knowledgeable and helpful.

Well worth visiting this lovely Manor just outside Wolverhampton. The guide was very informative and we learned a lot about this family history. Lovely gardens and delightful tea room.

This NT property on the outskirts of Wolverhampton is very peaceful and surrounded in beautiful gardens which makes it difficult to realise you are so close to a busy city. Not as old as you would first think it is however a lovely property that's has lots of interesting things to see. Every time I visit I almost think I... More

A lovely place to visit with wonderful architecture and art/furnishings. Knowledgeable staff (who will talk for just a little too long given the chance) and a privilege to get so close to some great pictures. But please allow us to take photos inside and stop giving us flannel about copyright. (And not forcing visitors to walk through puddles near the... More

Owned by the National Trust and a great place to visit. Large gardens and a charming large house. Must see the gallery and the dining room areas. Traces the Mander family history and contains some paintings and history about the pre Rafalites.Americans and overseas visitors will love the atmosphere.

Went here during the school holidays and absolutely loved it. It was great value for money and being Halloween themed we had to find pumpkins in the garden and bats in the house & then arts and crafts for the children all included in the entrance fee. Theres a great cafe although we did take a packed lunch as there... More

This is a delightful house full of local history about the Mander family who lived there. The Manders made their name in paint. First time visitors should take the guided tour to get the best insight into Wightwick Manor. Gardens are excellent in spring/summer & there are picnic areas. A large car park on site with easy access to house... More
