  • Lovely gallery not only explaining William morris journey but also showcasing local art and special exhibitions. Lovely bright and airy cafe overlooking the next door park. Lots of families with babies/toddlers at the weekend.
  • Lovely museum/gallery dedicated to the King of Arts & Crafts Movement. I think, he was years ahead of his time. I love his designs and his creativity. He didn't stick only to fabrics, he understood that there is more to interior design. So wallpapers, furniture...and much more. We can only be grateful that so many of his work survived. Superb.☺
  • Everything you ever wanted to know about Morris, but were to scared to ask. A themed overview outlining the scope of this inspired polymath, his milieu and resonating influence. Recently refurbished, cafe, attractive 'old English garden' setting and inevitable exit past the gift shop. Be it compact, but consummate.
  • What an incredible museum. When I went there was a fabulous temporary exhibition of protest posters. ✊🏻♥️
  • Enjoyed my 2nd visit there again, its very educational small museum and gallery, fun for kids, with nice gardens and a cafe.
