The Garden

Emery Walker, the great printer and antiquary who helped his friend and neighbour William Morris to set up the Kelmscott Press, lived at No 7 Hammersmith Terrace. After Walker’s death, his daughter Dorothy preserved the house as it had been during her father’s lifetime. The house is Britain's best-preserved Arts and Crafts interior and is full of original William Morris wallpapers, textiles and furniture. The garden boasts a raised platform at the end which overlooks the River Thames, original terracotta tiles from the late 1890s, a Cotswold-stone alpine trough and a grapevine grown from a cutting taken at Hogarth’s House.

Gardeners: Emery Walker Trust volunteers
