Kelmscott Manor was the inspirational country home of William Morris; poet, designer, craftsman, socialist and founding father of the Arts and Crafts movement.
An enchanting place within walking distance of the Thames Path, Kelmscott Manor offers a lot to visitors both young and old. Open from April to August.
Described as 'a heaven on earth', Morris loved the house as a work of true craftsmanship, totally unspoilt and unaltered, and in harmony with the village and the surrounding countryside.
Visitors today can still experience the beauty and seclusion that inspired many of William Morris's most important designs and writings and influenced his ideas on conservation for both the built and natural environments.
The Manor will be open to the public from April to August in 2019, every Wednesday and Saturday, 11.00am to 5.00pm. Last admission to the Manor House 4pm. In addition to visiting the Kelmscott Manor house and gardens, you can explore the licensed Tea Room and lovely gift shop.
The Manor always has a great programme of events for visitors, check the What's On page here before you visit!
