Advanced booking

You now need to book timed-tickets in advance to visit The Home of Charles Darwin. We have introduced limits on visitor numbers to help keep everyone safe, and you won’t be able to visit without your booking confirmation. If you’re a Member, your ticket will be free, but you still need to book in advance.

You can only book for visits until 30 June. Tickets for visits after this date will go on sale as soon as we have more details of our opening arrangements. We’ll update this page when we have more information to share.

We’ve reduced the admissions price for Down House while the interior areas are closed. This price is valid until 16 May when we will open our historic interiors. Two ticket types will be available from 17 May until 21 June. These are the house and grounds ticket, and the grounds-only ticket – which is available at a reduced rate.
