Emery Walker's House
Date of building: c. 1750s
7 Hammersmith Terrace
No 7 Hammersmith Terrace is a tall terraced house on the River Thames at Hammersmith in west London. Its sober Georgian exterior hides a secret – the decoration and furnishings preserved as they were in the lifetime of the printer Emery Walker (1851-1933), a great friend and mentor to William Morris. It is the best preserved Arts and Crafts interior in Britain. The house has been open for small groups of visitors each summer since 2005.
Sir Emery Walker, key member of the Arts & Crafts movement and private press movement in the late 1890s and early 20th Century.
Emery Walker House reopens in April after extensive restoration and will be conducting expert guided tours from April to November.Tours are held on Thursday and Saturdays. We also welcome pre-booked group visits on weekdays, for further information please contact us.
