Prices and Opening times for Home of Charles Darwin (Down House)

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 17 May. 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 The Home of Charles Darwin while the interior areas are closed. This price is valid until 17 May when we hope we will be able to open all our historic interiors.
