About The Tour
The greatest of the nineteenth century designers whose vision established the Arts and Crafts movement, William Morris created textiles, furniture, stained glass, wallpapers and carpets to counteract the over-fussy decoration of the Victorian era. His designs are timeless and as popular now as ever they have been.
British Tours can tailor-make a tour for you that looks at examples of his extraordinary talents as well as those who he inspired.
In London visit the William Morris Collection at the Victoria & Albert Museum where several of his works are on display, the William Morris Gallery in East London, the artist’s childhood home dedicated to his life and works, Kelmscott House in Hammersmith where he lived until his death, or the Red House, commissioned, created and lived in by William Morris.
Outside London visit his 17th century country house, Kelmscott Manor in Gloucestershire.
