Welcome to Erasmus Darwin House

Erasmus Darwin House is a historic house and previous home of Dr Erasmus Darwin – scientist, doctor, inventor, poet, botanist and Grandfather of Evolution (as well as Charles Darwin!)

The figure from history for whom you’d most like to buy a pie and a pint… Erasmus Darwin, Charles Darwin’s grandfather. He had all the ideas about evolution long before Charles.  He’s a great unsung hero. – Clarissa Dixon-Wright in The Daily Mail
