An amazing opportunity to learn more about the arts and crafts movement and the people who lived at Red House. Very knowledgeable guide showing us round. Not an enormous house but lots to learn and see.

Designed by the acclaimed Victorian architect Philip Webb for William Morris. Visiting this house is so much more than just visiting a place. A sense of Morris as a thinker, artist, poet and collaborative creative force breathes relentlessly through this house. So does the feeling...More

There is limited parking on the roads around the red house but watch out for the parking restrictions. It can get very busy especially if it’s a sunny weekend
