Iconic Arts and Crafts home of William and Jane Morris and the centre of the Pre-Raphaelite circle.

The only house commissioned, created and lived in by William Morris, founder of the Arts & Crafts movement, Red House is a building of extraordinary architectural and social significance.

Designed by Philip Webb and completed in 1860, it was described by Edward Burne-Jones as ‘the beautifullest place on earth’. The rooms at Red House give a unique view of William and Janey’s life and the establishment of what later became Morris & Co.

Red House boasts original features and furniture by Morris and Philip Webb, stained glass and paintings by Burne-Jones and embroidery by Jane and Elizabeth Burden. Coupled with bold architecture and a garden designed to ‘clothe the house’, they add up to a fascinating and rewarding place to visit.
