The John Scott Gallery is now open

The John Scott Gallery is a brand new collection of world-class British decorative tiles donated from a private collector. The 1,300 individual tiles and 310 tile panels feature a roll call of prestigious design names including Pugin, Dresser, Morris, De Morgan and Bawden.

The tiles have been donated by Mr John Scott, whose extensive collection had been privately displayed at his London home before its move to the museum.

Pieces originate from the mid 19th century through to the mid 20th century and offer a fascinating insight into the design aesthetics of the past, ranging from one-off pieces from private homes to ornate panels from hospitals and other public buildings.
