"There are many benefits to becoming a Friend of Kelmscott Manor, giving you value every time you visit and helping us look after this important historic property with one of the most important collections of its kind in the world. We hope you will become a Friend, and we look forward to welcoming you to Kelmscott Manor and to the Society’s apartments at Burlington House, where William Morris was a Fellow".
