This exhibition celebrates the imagination, eclecticism, and creative process of acclaimed 19th-century designers William Burges, Horatio Walter Lonsdale, Robert Weir Schultz, Sir Robert Lorimer, Christopher Dresser and William Morris. Assembling spectacular examples of jewellery, furniture, watercolours, books, stained glass, silver and other metalwork - it will explore the Bute family legacy of commissioning and collecting Arts & Crafts and Gothic Revival masterpieces.

Curated in-house, this is the first time that many of these treasures from the Bute Collection will be exhibited publicly, paired with several rarely seen objects on loan from national institutions.
