Kelmscott Manor

The layout of the buildings provides a series of small walled gardens, unlinked and unrelated.

Wander through the Lawn Garden, the Mulberry Garden and Orchard which has been replanted with Victorian varieties of apple and plum and underplanted with Spring bulbs and flowers.

The Front Garden is instantly recognisable as the frontispiece to News from Nowhere.

Don’t miss Fafnir, the topiary dragon clipped into shape by Morris.

There’s a 10 minute walk through the village from the Car Park to the Manor.

The gardens are only open on certain days of the week between April and August – check the website for details.

Kelmscott is now owned by the Society Of Antiquaries.
