The Garden

William Morris lived at Kelmscott House for the last 18 years of his life. He wrote: ‘The situation is certainly the prettiest in London... the garden is really most beautiful.’

Our small garden contains a number of plants which feature in Morris's textile and wallpaper designs. The shady lower garden contains a variety of ferns, which thrive well in its microclimate.

The lower floors of Kelmscott House are now the headquarters of the William Morris Society and contain a registered museum dedicated to his life and work. The museum is open on Thursdays and Saturdays 2–5pm.
