Art Miles is a new fundraising initiative organised by the Art Fund, the national fundraising charity for art, to help raise money for museums and galleries. It is a fun, cultural walk of approximately three miles in the grounds of the participating venues for people to support their local museum or gallery by raising money.
Your Art Miles walk will take in several points of interest, including areas that are not normally open to the public, and will give you the the opportunity to test your art knowledge. You’ll also receive a fabulous Art Fund tote bag upon arrival to the event as a thank you for your good deed!

About the event
The only public museum in Britain dedicated to the leader of the Arts and Crafts movement, the museum is based in Morris' magnificient childhood home, in Walthamstow's Lloyd Park.
The gallery was awarded the Art Fund Prize for Museum of the Year in 2013.
Raise much-needed funds for the William Morris Gallery while exploring your creative side in the beautiful surroundings of Lloyd Park. For one day only the park will be transformed into an arts and crafts activity trail for people of all ages. Along the route you’ll meet special guest artists and there will be one or two surprises inspired by our collections. You’ll leave with your own work of art, created step-by-step along the trail. For those who like an extra challenge, why not come in costume inspired by William Morris? There will be prizes for the best dressed. Wellies highly recommended!
Tour lasts approximately two hours.
