Home of Charles Darwin (Down House)

Luxted Road, Downe, Kent - BR6 7JT

The car park is free of charge and is just 50 metres from the front entrance. It has 42 spaces, including two disabled bays. Access to the house is via a level path away from the road. We use the overflow carpark at busy times but this is restricted in poor weather. Please try and use public transport wherever possible. There is one coach bay available which needs to be booked in advance. Please note: There are no additional car parks within walking distance of the site.
