Down House


About the Down House

Down House is the family home of Charles Darwin, and now a museum to his life and works.

Stand in the study where Darwin wrote 'On the Origin of Species', stroll through the gardens that inspired him, and visit his and wife Emma's newly recreated bedroom which overlooks the gardens.

Let Sir David Attenborough take you on an interactive multimedia tour around the house, and discover how the great man developed his ground-breaking theories.
