Reflecting the Arts and Crafts movement, and other popular fashions of the period, the interior features carved oak panelling and, in the grand Staircase Hall, six Pre-Raphaelite paintings by Frederick Shields and a cosy inglenook fireplace.
Bantock House also has fine examples of English porcelain and ceramics including Delftware tiles, Royal Worcester, Bloor Derby and Myatt, exquisite examples of locally made japanned ware, enamels and steel jewellery, as well as a display of children’s toys and dolls.
The refurbished late Victorian Billiard Room features information about the lives of leading Wolverhampton businessmen and industrialists, including Charles Mander and Charles Chubb, while the Upstairs Hall, Lady’s Bedroom and Day Nursery reveal more about the life of Victorian children, the role of women, and Bantock House’s servants.
A varied events programme includes temporary exhibitions, history talks, storytelling, family activities, and more.
