Home of Europe's largest public collection of Tiffany Glass, the Haworth Art Gallery was originally called 'Hollins Hill'. It is a Tudor-style Edwardian house designed and built by Walter Brierley, FSA of York, for brother and sister, William and Anne Haworth. It is a fine example of the Arts and Crafts movement and includes an oak pannelled entrance hall, hand crafted decoration and heraldic stained glass windows. The gallery stands in nine acres of parkland.
