Emery Walker’s House
Thursdays and Saturdays, beginning of March – end of November.
7 Hammersmith Terrace was the home of one of the key members of The Arts & Crafts Movement: visionary printer and photographer Emery Walker, father of the Private Press movement and a close friend of William Morris. The house has been restored, its contents conserved and catalogued; it was reopened to the public in 2017. It is the best example of an Arts & Crafts interior in the country, as it has been kept with the original Victorian decor by successive occupants.
The Emery Walker Arts & Crafts house, 7 Hammersmith Terrace, W6 9TS, is open on Thursdays and Saturdays from the beginning of March to the end of November. Emery Walker Trust volunteers run one hour guided tours at 11am, 1pm and 3pm, but please note these must be booked in advance, as tours are limited to eight visitors at a time.
The house is full of beautiful objects, paintings and embroidery by members of the Arts and Crafts fraternity who were friends of Emery Walker and his daughter Dorothy, such as Edward Burne-Jones, Philip Webb and William and May Morris.
£11.00 on Thursdays, £12.50 on Saturdays
