Nestled in Lichfield's idyllic Cathedral Close, Erasmus Darwin House is an independent, accredited museum that was once the family home of doctor, inventor and published poet Erasmus Darwin. This stunning Grade I listed Georgian house is a stone's throw away from Lichfield Cathedral and previously served as a residence for cathedral officials.
When Darwin moved here in 1758, the building would have looked more like the timbered buildings that still surround it. Darwin addedthe fine faade and reoriented the house to face Beacon Street rather than into the Close. You can still see elements of the Medieval structure that developed into this home, such as the thick walls surrounding the cathedral. In 2009 refurbishment of the two main exhibition rooms took place and again in 2013, major changes were made to the Inventions Room, bringing the thoughts and inventions from Erasmus Darwin's fascinating Commonplace Book off the page.
Celebrate in style
Civil ceremonies usually last no more than 20 minutes, therefore rooms at Erasmus Darwin House are booked on a three-hourly basis with space for up to 30 guests.
A combination of rooms can be used for the reception or couples can hire the townhouse exclusively for up to 40 friends and family.
The venue's rich history and the fact it is a registered charity.
