    Erasmus Darwin was Charles' grandfather but was a very interesting person in his own right. He was an inventor (his suggestions help develop our modern car steering wheels) and a famous poet. He was a...  more »

    I had tickets for a play in the cellar of Erasmus Darwin House - cracking little venue for Victorian storytelling.  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.
  • 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 good place to brush up on your Erasmus Darwin knowledge. The herb garden could use a little more attention though. You have to watch the hilarious video about Darwin's voice machine!
  • Very educational for kids worth a visit while in Litchfield.
