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.
