Visit Emery Walker's House
The Trust's expert volunteers run one hour guided tours at 11am, 1pm and 3pm on Thursdays and Saturdays from the beginning of March until the end of November.
Tours are limited to eight visitors due to the size and fragile nature of the house and its many contents. Tours last one hour and must be pre-booked through Eventbrite (see How to Book below).
How to Book
All tours must be booked through a system called Eventbrite. We regret we cannot take bookings over the phone. Please use the calendar on the right to book onto one of our house tours, using the arrow in the top right hand corner of the calendar to move on to the next month. Then simply click on the date you want to visit, then on the time - there are three options - 11am, 1pm and 3pm displayed below the date.
You will then be taken through to the booking system which will give you further instructions.
You do not need to sign up to Eventbrite to make a booking with us if you choose not to, simply follow the procedure as a "guest".
If you would like to visit on a day other than a Thursday or Saturday, you may like to consider a private group tour, which we can offer on other days of the week up until the end of November, with a minimum of one month's notice – these are priced at £100 for up to eight people, and are by direct arrangement with us. Please mail your requirements and a few date options to
Arts & Crafts Textiles Tours
In addition to our usual guided tours we have teamed up with the nearby William Morris Society to deliver a series of specialist tours that focus on the Arts & Crafts textiles in both collections. 2020 dates to be listed soon.
Emery Walker's House is a Grade II* listed, tall, terraced house with narrow stairs between the three floors open to the public, as well as steps to the rear garden (46 steps in total). We regret that wheelchair or step free access is not possible.
Lighting levels are low throughout the building.
Due to the constraints of space, the high density of furniture and precious objects, and to help conserve the fragile collections, the house is unsuitable for young children.
For those unable to access the house we offer a virtual tour - just click on the heading marked VIRTUAL TOUR below the logo on the top of this page.
Unfortunately, for conservation reasons, photography is not allowed inside the house. A selection of postcards, greeting cards, books and gifts can be purchased after the tour.
