7 Hammersmith Terrace is a tall Georgian house on the River
Thames. From 1903 to 1933 it was the home of Sir Emery Walker,
printer, collector, and mentor to his neighbour William Morris.
Contains perfectly preserved Arts & Crafts interior.
He furnished the house with wallpaper, textiles and furniture
from Morris & Co., as well as ceramics and rugs he collected on
his travels throughout Europe. The manner of decoration is very
much that found in the homes of his friends, the leaders of the
Arts & Crafts movement, William Morris and Philip Webb. Thanks
to the efforts of Walker's daughter, the furnishing and decoration
of the house has survived almost exactly as it was in his lifetime.
As such, it is the only interior of its kind in Britain.
Visitors can hear about the stories of Emery and his family and
friends, how the house came to be preserved and the importance of
the house to the Arts & Crafts movement.
