Visit William Morris Society

Posted in Hammersmith - London, Arts, Living at Pure

This little museum by the river is where William Morris, leading member of the Arts and Crafts movement, lived and worked for the last eighteen years of his life. He once described Kelmscott as ‘the most beautiful house in London’.

Unfortunately most of the house is now privately owned but you can certainly get a feel of it from the rooms preserved by the William Morris Society. Visit the Craft workshop and the Albion Press coach House and library for changing exhibitions of Morris embroideries and Pre-Raphaelite drawings as well as original designs. You can also wander through the garden for some English inspiration.

Open Saturday and Thursday afternoons or at other times by appointment.
