Red House (William Morris Museum)The William Morris-designed Red House in Bexleyheath was once described as "the beautifullest place on earth" by Sir Edward Burne-Jones, whose paintings are on show inside the National Trust-owned property. Designed by Philip Webb in 1859 and built as an architectural embodiment of an aesthetic ideal, this enchanting redbrick house set in orchards and away from the city is a building of extraordinary architectural and social significance. The original features and furniture by Morris (founder of the Arts & Craft movement) and Webb, stained glass and paintings by Burne-Jones, the bold architecture and a garden designed to 'clothe the house', make the Red House both a fascinating and rewarding place to visit.
