Emery Walker's House

The house is closed for refurbishment until 2017.

The tall, terraced house on the River Thames at Hammersmith was home to the printer Emery Walker, friend and mentor to William Morris. The decoration and furnishings are preserved as they were in his lifetime.

The decoration at 7 Hammersmith Terrace today is typical of the homes of many of the key figures in the Arts and Crafts movement. The combination of Morris & Co textiles, wallpapers and furniture, 17th- and 18th-century furniture, and Middle Eastern and North African textiles and ceramics is similar to that which decorated William Morris's own house.

The house is currently closed for refurbishment and will reopen in early 2017. The William Morris Society's base at nearby Kelmscott House will remain open for visitors during the works.
