William Morris Gallery


Water House

Website www.walthamforest.gov.uk/william-morris

The William Morris Gallery is closed for redevelopment until July 2012. It is being transformed into a cultural destination where people of all ages will enjoy and be inspired by the life, work and extraordinary influence of William Morris.

The William Morris Gallery is the only public gallery devoted to William Morris— designer, craftsman, writer, socialist and conservationist—and displays an internationally important collection illustrating his life, achievements and influence. William Morris was born in Walthamstow in 1834. The Gallery is delightfully housed in the 18th Century Water House, Morris's family home from 1848 to 1856, and set in Lloyd Park in Walthamstow.
