William Morris Gallery

Discover Britain's most inspiring designer!

The William Morris Gallery is the only public gallery devoted to the life and legacy of William Morris: designer, craftsman, socialist 

The William Morris Gallery is housed in a Georgian house, built in the 1740s and set in Lloyd Park in Walthamstow, in north-east London. The grade II* listed building was Morris's family home from 1848 to 1856. The only public Gallery devoted to William Morris, it reopened in August 2012 following a major redevelopment.

Description

The William Morris Gallery is fully accessible, with an accessible entrance, accessible toilets and lift access to all floors. 

We have three Blue Badge parking bays. Access is via Forest Road. The Gallery gates are kept locked to prevent unauthorised parking. Blue badge holders are therefore asked to call the Gallery on 020 8496 1470 when they arrive and someone will come and let you in. If you don't have a mobile phone you can call us in advance so we know to expect you.

An induction loop and large print labels are available at reception. Please contact us if you require British Sign Language (BSL) interpretation to take part in any of our talks and events.

We also have two manual wheelchairs for visitors to borrow, please contact us if you would like to reserve one for your visit.

The Acanthus room on the second floor is used for talks and private hire. The doorway is quite narrow (width 63cm). If you have any concerns about the width of your wheelchair please contact us and, where possible, we can provide extra assistance or relocate the event.

For any other access enquiries or feedback please call us on 020 8496 4390, or emailwmg.enquiries@walthamforest.gov.uk.
