Family Fun this Spring at Down House

Explore a unique place in the history of science and evolution at the English Heritage home and garden of Charles Darwin!

13 February 2018 – 2 April 2018

Down House is a place of discovery where families can combine a fascinating day out with an entertaining adventure into the past, exploring the home of Charles Darwin and his wife Emma.

Explore the recently re-opened bedroom of Charles and Emma Darwin to find out what Victorian life was like for this internationally famed husband, father and scientist. The dressing closet has also been re-opened, allowing both children and adults to dress up as Charles and Emma!

This Spring, follow the new family trail around the house and let the children loose in the acres of gardens. During Half Term join the man himself at Discover with Darwin, 13-17 February, and explore evolution at its birthplace as you delve daringly into the mysteries of science. Or take part in the annual Easter Adventure Quest, 30 March – 2 April, as you hunt for legendary dragon eggs! Set off with an intrepid character from the past to crack the clues and claim your chocolate reward.

Down House has a huge range of family friendly events taking place this Spring, including Discover with Darwin, 13-17 February, and the Easter Adventure Quest, 30 March – 2 April.
