Planning to visit the UK soon? Perhaps you already live there? The Muriel Matters Society Inc. has constructed a number of interactive maps to help you visit some of the key sites associated with Muriel’s life…

Can you help?
This interactive map of Hastings is a work in progress so if you have anything to add to please get in touch with The Society. Information on the exact location of the Hollington P.S.A. (Primary School Academy) and the ‘Grand Restaurant, Hastings’ in particular would be greatly appreciated! Both were venues where Muriel once spoke.
Map of the 1908 Caravan Tour
In 1908 Muriel Matters, along with other members of the Women’s Freedom League (WFL), toured the South East counties of England by caravan. They proclaimed the benefits of women’s suffrage to rural areas and helped create new WFL branches as they went. Above their route is marked out using modern roads. A special thanks to Marie and Chris Maddocks of The Muriel Matters Society for researching and mapping out the route. For a detailed itinerary of the dates and places Muriel and friends visited on the tour click here.
More maps are in production… We look forward to sharing them when they become avaliable!
Visit Muriel’s Home in Hastings!
If you’re in the UK why not visit Muriel Matters’ long-time private residence? Muriel didn’t just have a good taste in politics but a fine taste in houses it seems… She lived at 7 Pelham Crescent in Hastings following the death of her husband in 1949 until her death in 1969. Her home is beside St Mary in the Castle, an icon of Hastings and former church built in a neoclassical style that has since been converted into an arts centre. It is a wonderful part of town with places to eat and shop right next on the seaside. An interesting crypt under the church can also be accessed through the café on street level. You can even get a photo next to Muriel’s Blue Plaque if you like!
The exact address of Muriel’s old home is 7 Pelham Crescent, Hastings, UK
