From 31st March to 31st October 2013:
Please be aware that, on occasion, the House may be closed to visitors when special functions are being held. If you are travelling from a distance please call beforehand to check opening times (Office manned Mon-Fri 9-5pm).
Erasmus Darwin House is located in Beacon Street, on the edge of Cathedral Close, and a few minutes walk from the centre of Lichfield.
There are two visitor entrances. From Beacon Street, go through the green gates on the right-hand side of the House. Or from the Close, go through the passage way opposite the west end of the Cathedral and then through the herb garden. Both routes will bring you to a door at the rear of the House, where a member of our volunteer staff will welcome you.
Take a moment to look round the maturing herb garden at the rear, and enjoy the recognisable culinary smells of this secluded spot in this ancient part of the City.
All public parts of the building have wheelchair access and comfort facilities for less mobile people.
