About 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.
