This is a wonderful place and a wonderful museum. A fun dressing up after for kids upstairs. It’s free too. The cafe is not ideal for toddlers but if it is nice outside you have the grounds!

Great place to visit if you have an interest in art. There is great history behind William Morris. The cafe offers a varied selection of food. After the visit to the gallery you can then have relaxing walk around Lloyd Park.

Interesting collection of designs by William Morris, who I have to admit I had not heard of before visiting. We were in the area so paid a visit, entry was free so obviously good value, and educational.

Lovely museum, fantastic warm meet & greet. Small and manageable and set in a beautiful park. Learned a lot about William Morris and his circle, and their politics and personal lives. Brilliant on the context too.
