William Morris Gallery

Visit the family home of William Morris, the designer, craftsman, writer, conservationist and socialist.

From 1848 to 1856, the spectacular Georgian house was the family home of William Morris (1834-1896), the designer, craftsman, writer, conservationist and socialist.

William Morris wrote some of his earliest poetry seated in the tall window on the main staircase, and his friend Edward Burne-Jones, on a visit to the Morrises in the 1850s, painted studies of the trees on the island.
