English Down House

Down House is the former home of the English naturalist Charles Darwin and his family. It was in this house and garden that Darwin worked on his theories of evolution by natural selection which he had conceived in London before moving to Down.

The Grade I listed building stands in Luxted Road 0.25 miles (0.40 km) south of Downe, a village 14.25 miles (22.93 km) south east of London's Charing Cross, which was still known as Down when he moved there in 1842. In Darwin's day, Downe was a parish in Kent: it subsequently came under Bromley Rural District, and since 1965 has lain within the London Borough of Bromley.

The house, garden and grounds are in the guardianship of English Heritage, have been restored and are open to the public.

English Down House

It was at Down House that Charles Darwin worked on his scientific theories, and wrote On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, the book which both scandalised and revolutionised the Victorian world when it was published in 1859. Built in the early 18th century, the house remains much as it was when Darwin lived here. The rooms on the ground floor have been furnished to reflect the domestic life of the family and the first floor offers an interactive exhibition on his life, his research and his discoveries. English Heritage has restored the gardens to their appearance in Darwin's time.

Italian Down House

Qui in questa casa Charles Darwin lavorò alle sue teorie scientifiche e scrisse "L'origine della specie secondo la selezione naturale", il libro che scandalizzò e rivoluzionò il mondo vittoriano quando fu pubblicato nel 1859. Costruita all'inizio del XVIII secolo, la casa è rimasta pressoché come l'ha lasciata Darwin. Le stanze al pian terreno sono state arredate per descrivere la vita domestica della famiglia, mentre al primo piano si trova una mostra sulla sua vita, le ricerche e le scoperte. La società English Heritage ha ristrutturato i giardini riportandoli alla versione originale del tempo darwiniano.
