    Visited May 2017. Fabulous gallery telling the story of William Morris and in some ways ourselves. Great café too and fabulous park and grounds. Morris was certainly more than wallpaper!  more »

  • A family friendly museum. A lot of interactive exhibits for children. Quite a lot to look at and plenty of text and video content if you want to delve deeper into the William Morris and Arts and Crafts Movement story. I would have liked to see a stronger staff presence as the only staff appeared to be in the gift shop and cafe! Beautiful historic house and gardens as well. Wonderful that the museum is free to visit and I'm sure all who come spend their money at the gift shop. The cafe is small but nice and bright and looks out onto the park. The high tea looked very civilized.
  • William Morris gallery is free and yet has lots to offer! Having an arts & crafts background I found the information there quite useful! The staff was very nice and enthusiastic! It also has a café and a lovely view over Lloyd Park! It's full of details and if you are a Titanic lover like me you'd find a little gem there! There's also a workshop and a shop with beautiful pottery! Great to visit whether it's a rainy or sunny! And if you have young children it's a plus to sot in the gardens or have a bit of fun watching them use their activities! Have fun!
  • Lovely park and surroundings. The Gallery is different and shows a beautifully kept manor house and displays. Plus it's free
  • Update There is a new exhibition. Small but worth a visit.😍 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.☺
  • A reall cool gallery to check if your nearby. William morris himself was a great textile designer and his work here is great.
