Emery Walker

Anyone fascinated by the Arts & Craft Movement may be interested in
visiting Emery Walker’s House at 7 Hammersmith Terrace in London. Emery
Walker was a key member of the Arts & Craft Movement, close friend and
advisor of William Morris, and an inspirational force behind the private press
movement of the 1890s and early 20th century. The house is an atmospheric
time capsule packed with Arts & Crafts treasures including the world’s
largest collection of hand blocked Morris & Co. wallpapers in situ. The house
is open from March to November and offers group tours on days other than
Thursdays and Saturdays (when it is open to the public). Tours last just over
an hour and are led by guides who accompany visitors through all of the main
rooms and - weather permitting - the garden.
