On 2 August 2012, the William Morris Gallery reopens, after major redevelopment. Morris' stunning Georgian home now boasts three new galleries, previously unseen works a library, a research and education center and a new Georgian orangery-inspired extension housing a new tearoom and balcony overlooking the gardens. Morris' influence on society, art and design is vast, and of interest to a wide range of audiences.
Almost 600 objects will now be on display across 12 galleries. Many artefacts are on display for the first time and arranged across six major themes exploring different aspects of Morris’ life.
The Gallery - set in Lloyd Park in Walthamstow - has been transformed into a world-class cultural destination for Waltham Forest, just in time for the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Entry is free
