Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The William Morris Society's museum is in the basement and Coach House of Kelmscott House, Morris's London home for the last 18 years of his life. During this time, Morris ran his manufacturing company, Morris and Company, at Merton Abbey, the Kelmscott Press in nearby houses and organised the Socialist League and later the Hammersmith Socialist Society, holding meetings in the Coach House. The collection contains a number of Kelmscott Press titles and working proofs as well as the only printing press used by Morris remaining in the country. There is also a collection of Morris and Company wallpapers, watercolour designs, and a selection of textiles, ranging from a 'Hammersmith' rug and woven hangings to printed cottons, silks and embroideries.
