Explore William Morris's ‘Heaven on Earth’, Kelmscott Manor.

Welcome to Kelmscott Manor!

Come and visit the Manor house and adjoining farm buildings loved by Morris as a work of true craftmanship, totally unspoilt and unaltered, and in harmony with the surrounding countryside.

View the iconic collection of artwork and objects owned and designed by the Father of the Arts & Crafts Movement and discover why the Cotswold home became an inspiration for him and his family. Take a stroll around the enchanting gardens and enjoy homemade food from our licensed tearoom.
Kelmscott Manor is a place where creativity and imagination thrive, and we encourage you to fully immerse yourself in the experience.

New for 2024 visit our exhibition “Mountains and plains and adventure: William & May Morris and Iceland”. Celebrating the centenary of May Morris’s first trip to Iceland, the exhibition showcases previously unknown diaries, artifacts, and art reflecting the Morris family’s deep connection to Iceland. Visitors will discover May’s adventures and compare them with William Morris’s iconic visits. Curated by Dr. Kathy Haslam and Dr. Emily Lethbridge, the exhibition highlights themes of travel, culture, and legacy, featuring items from the Society of Antiquaries, the British Library, and more. 

The exhibition runs from 6th June- 26th October. Visit our exhibition page for more details.
