Haworth Art Gallery

The Haworth Art Gallery is an Edwardian public art gallery located in Accrington, Hyndburn.

In fact, it is the home of the largest collection in Europe of Tiffany glass. Indeed, this is from the studio of Louis Comfort Tiffany. Furthermore, it is reputed to be the largest public collection outside of the USA. Set in 9 acres of its own parkland, this stunning mansion is the perfect setting for a day out.


The museum, a Tudor-style house, was originally built in 1909 to be the home of William Haworth, a manufacturer of textiles. The house was designed by Walter Brierley (1862–1926), a York architect. It was bequeathed to the people of Accrington in 1920 and stands in nine acres of parkland on the south side of Accrington Town Centre.
