How to visit Red House your way

A visitor and guide at Red House

Red House is an architectural gem inside and out but does not have a major collection as William Morris, its first famous owner, moved out early in his career and took all of his belongings with him. You can choose how to find out all about it.

Guided tours only in the morning

 
In the morning we offer 5 guided tours at 11am, 11.30am, 12pm, 12.30pm and 1pm so that visitors can hear the stories and learn how William Morris and his friends lived and worked here. The tours last 45 min to an hour. This is only way to visit Red House in the morning and so it is best to pre-book to avoid disappointment on our booking line 0208 304 9878 (manned Tues-Sat 9.30am -1 .30pm).
 

Wander around on your own in the afternoon

 
If you prefer to visit unguided from 1.30pm you can visit the house without booking and wander around on your own to sample the atmosphere. There are room sheets in all the rooms and room guides to ask questions should you wish for further information.
