Serving the Harp World Since 1817

About Us

Clive Morley Harps Brochure (1.4MB PDF)

Clive Morley Harps is a family business that dates back to 1817, when George Morley (1790-1852) registered his harp making, tuning and repair business in London. As you would expect, Clive Morley (1936-2015) grew up surrounded by harps and harpists and gained a wealth of knowledge about the instrument. His experience was passed on to his son, Ben, who has managed the business since 2006.

Ben and his team - Lyndsey, Lisa-Mair and Paula -  use this considerable expertise to work with modern harp makers so that we can provide a wide range of quality harps to suit every player, whatever their budget, ability or musical style. We stock harps by such prestigious makers as Salvi, Lyon & Healy, Dusty Strings, Aoyama, Triplett and Noteworthy.

Our Showrooms

We have a large showroom dedicated to pedal and lever harps, with a wide range of harps in stock for immediate purchase or rental. We also have a comprehensive selection of sheet music, CDs, videos, accessories and a full range of strings for all harps.

Our offices are here too, so do drop by if we can help you with any harping questions or requests you may have. There is usually a harpist around and all our staff are very knowledgeable about the harp. You are most welcome to visit us and try our harps too; just let us know that you are on the way, so we can be sure to have the harps ready for you.
