Garden Tour: William Morris

See the inspiration for William Morris’ designs with a bespoke tour of our flourishing summer garden.

In harmony with Shaw and Morris’ close relationship, and the subsequent items that we house in our collection, we bring his textiles and wallpapers to life through the plants and flowers visible in our tranquil garden.

The tour will last one hour, with the chance to ask questions at the end. A complimentary Morris-inspired soft drink will be served upon arrival.
