The car park had about 20 places including 4 for electric cars and 6 for disabled cars The museum was small but informative you're struggled to spend an hour here We would have gone around the garden but for parking problems

Small (one room) but interesting exhibition with some delightful paintings. Otherwise the gallery is fascinating on William Morris, and set in a pleasant park.

The museum is a little off the beaten track, in Lloyds Park, Walthamstow. The great man lived here for a while. There is an art gallery, featuring paintings by Monet, Pissarro and even drawings by Beatrix Potter. There is also a room containing manuscripts as...More

An excellent exhibition that tells the story of William Morris’ life and shows his work. Interactive exhibits, lots of art and examples of his work, all well displayed, beautiful house and gardens. Def worth visiting.

Where to eat in Walthamstow (4 Replies)
We are currently in London for 11 nights and trying to decide what to do on Sunday. One option is to visit the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow. Does anyone have a recommendation of a good place to eat, probably mid-day, in the village? A good pub would be fine. Thanks for your help.

William Morris Gallery strongly recommended. The Rose and Crown, en route from the station to the Gallery, is a genuine LOndon pub, but I haven't eaten there for years! In the Village, also recommended, is the Nags Head, and there are a couple of quite pleasant restaurants in Orford Rd.

Walthamstow Strret Market Worthwhile? (5 Replies)
I've been to the William Morris Gallery and saw a bit of the market from the bus. Planning on going back to Walthamstow for another visit to the Gallery. Should we walk through the market as well? We love street markets---any secondhand book stalls? Which day is best?

Walthamstow market doesn't have much of interest to a tourist ... it stretches all the way from Walthamstow Central station to Blackhorse Road station ... the top part (near Walthamstow Central) has a lot of clothes, fabric etc ... the bottom part (near Blackhorse Road) is more fruit and veg ... very good for day-to-day shopping but nothing quirky or out of the ordinary

While visiting London 2-1/2 years ago, we spent a delightful day visiting the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow, an easy train ride. This museum, built in one of William Morris' homes, is dedicated to this important designer of the Arts and Crafts period. Original furniture, decorative wall coverings, book covers, etc. are displayed, along with information about Morris' personal history and examples of his Socialist writings. The day of our visit happened to be street market day, great...More

Good to hear you got out there. Like Sutton House, the William Morris is a historic place sat in the midst of very ordinary London, but well worth the trip.
