Erasmus Darwin’s House, Lichfield

One of the hidden treasures that is close to where I live is the city of Lichfield and one of my favourite places to visit is Erasmus Darwin’s House.

Erasmus Darwin was renowned 18th century physician, inventor and poet.  He was also the grandfather of Charles Darwin.  He lived in the house from 1758 – 1781.

The house contains two exhibition rooms.  These contain audio and visual exhibits.  These can be hired out for private functions.  One of the most popular features is the herb garden.  This is a restoration of a Georgian herb garden using plants from the period.

Costing £3.00 entrance fee this is an ideal introduction to Erasmus Darwin and the life he lived in Lichfield.

Until the next post, stay safe, stay healthy and keep on smiling.
