The Garden

7 Hammersmith Terrace was home to Emery Walker, the great printer and antiquary, who helped his friend William Morris, who lived nearby, to set up the Kelmscott Press.

After Walker’s death, his daughter Dorothy preserved the house as it had been in her father’s lifetime. Full of original William Morris wallpapers, textiles and furniture, it is the best-preserved Arts-and-Crafts interior in Britain.

Features of the garden include a raised platform at the end overlooking the Thames, original terracotta tiles from the late 1890s, a grapevine grown from a cutting taken at Hogarth's House around 1900, and a Cotswold-stone alpine trough.

Gardeners: Emery Walker Trust volunteers
