Primarily utilised as an independent museum celebrating the work and achievements of Erasmus Darwin, this venue is surrounded with remarkable artefacts and décor.


With over 250 years of rich history, Erasmus Darwin House is a fascinating venue. The venue gained its title due to the building once being the home of renowned physician, scientist and inventor Dr Erasmus Darwin.

In 1760, the home was transformed, introducing several large new rooms yet still retaining its friendly and welcoming charm. Following this, the house underwent extensive restoration and was finally opened to the public in 1999 as a charming museum and events venue.

  • Emily and Gareth

    We held our intimate wedding at Erasmus Darwin House and it was amazing from start to finish. We got married upstairs in a beautifully decorated room and had champagne and canapés in the walled garden. As we came out the cathedral bells rang which was lucky and we had some fab photographs outside. The team are amazing and if you want a beautiful little venue to make your day then you can’t go wrong with Erasmus Darwin House.
