Thinking of visiting Down House? The former home of English naturalist and father of evolutionary theory, Charles Darwin is now an English Heritage property and offers a wonderful day out for school groups and families alike. The house offers many cross-curricular learning opportunities, as it was in this house and gardens that Darwin worked on his theories of evolution by natural selection.
You can revisit the interior of the house which has been preserved and in parts recreated in the original Victorian style using details from photographs and journals. You can visit the rooms were Darwin spent his days and wrote “On the Origin of Species”. The gardens were where Darwin developed many of his groundbreaking ideas on evolution and natural selection. Twelve of Darwin’s experiments have been recreated in the gardens and greenhouse.
