Kelmscott Manor was the inspirational country home of William Morris; poet, designer, craftsman, socialist and founding father of the Arts and Crafts movement. This Grade I listed house was loved by Morris as a survival of traditional craftsmanship in harmony with the nearby village and surrounding landscape, which lies towards the very upper reaches of the Thames, inspiring many of his most important designs and writings, including world-famous Willow pattern.

Discover the treasures of Kelmscott including:
• Morris’ collection of ceramics, textiles, metalwork and books
• Furnishings from each of Morris’ London homes
• Furnishings chosen by Pre-Raphaelite artist DG Rossetti

Take a stroll around the Manor’s gardens, original barns, dovecot, stream and meadow and visit the church and gravestones of William and Jane Morris, and their two daughters.

Enjoy a break in the licensed Tearoom. The Tearoom serves delicious cream teas and light meals, homemade from locally sourced products. The charming shop, located in an historic barn, is a must for anyone looking for a momento or gift.
