One of my favorite afternoons in London last year was spent at the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow (East London). This gorgeous old home was the one-time residence of the Morris family during the formative years of Morris’ early teenage years. Here he fell in love with the forest and dreamed up heroic adventures. The museum itself is a delightful look at all the many interests and pursuits that Morris mastered over his lifetime, including interior design, poetry, book-making, stained-glass, and more. They had a lovely tea room with a beautiful view of the house’s garden and Lloyd Park.
I didn’t get to do too much exploring in Walthamstow, but having spotted three instances of William Morris street art walking to and from the tube, I left very much in love with the place.
