Categories: History Museums, Historic Sites, Nature & Parks, Museums, Tourist Spots
Filled to bursting with eclectic items collected by architect Charles Wade, Snowshill Manor stands as one of the Cotswolds' little-known but remarkably rewarding tourist attractions. Interested in every object that shows outstanding craftsmanship, Wade lived by the motto "Let nothing perish." He filled the house with antique clocks, rare musical instruments, small toys, old bicycles and more. Among thousands of items amassed during Wade's life, you can see 26 suits of samurai armor, the manor's most famous possessions. The grounds include a typical English garden, restaurant, and a gift shop, where you can pick up handmade souvenirs and second-hand books. With our international travel planner, Snowshill attractions like Snowshill Manor can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
