William Burges was one of the most imaginative designers of the nineteenth century. Regarded by many as an eccentric, Burges had a passion for Gothic art-architecture. This guide looks at Burges' early commissions and his work at St Fin Barre's Cathedral, Yorkshire, Cardiff Castle, Castell Coch, Knightshayes and Tower House, London.
