  • We were pleasantly surprised at exhibits and wide interests held by Charles Darwin's grandfather - medical doctor, inventor, writer and thinker. Visit here for a different view on the Darwin family.  more »

  • This is a great place to visit home of Charles Darwin. Erasmus Darwin was a man before his time and his house is free to visit. The house is tucked away in a little courtyard close to the wonderful Lichfield Cathedral. The house is very interesting to visit for all ages. You are actively encouraged to touch exhibits, there is a video all about the great man and his achievements. For little ones there is a mouse trail with little pictures of mice hidden all over the house and when complete they get a certificate and a little knitted mouse to take home. We visited with our Grandchildren aged between 11 and 6 and we all loved it. The staff are lovely and friendly and informative and will answer all questions and if they don't know the answer will get it for you before you leave. It is a little hidden gem and we all loved it. It is a must see.
  • Spent about an hour here. Very educational. Good for families. Free entry with optional small donation.
  • This is a very important place for all ages interested in the history of the sciences . The gardens are gorgeous & full of herbs & shrubs . The upstairs cafe is a super tea and cakes place .
  • Just by the cathedral. Sit in the garden Afternoon tea. A wonder around the house at no entrance fee.
  • A hidden gem in the heart of Lichfield, full of history and wonderful for kids. Definitely worth a visit.
