The D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum is an authentically recreated miner’s cottage, mirroring
how a working class home would have looked like in Eastwood in the late 1800s. As part of your free admission, you will see our exhibition rooms filled with interesting objects, with lots of things to touch and play with (like Victorian toys and smelly Carbolic
soap!). Before you enter the Lawrence family’s house you’ll also get to see a short video on D.H. Lawrence and Eastwood, setting the scene for your visit with us.
It doesn’t matter if you have never read any D.H. Lawrence before, we won’t test you!
Our experienced guides are able to tailor the tour to your interests. Hear tales of the working class family and the local community who inspired and influenced young D.H. Lawrence.
Step back in time and don’t be afraid to keep saying “I remember my grandmother’s house
was like this!”
We also offer children’s trails, like our popular ‘Then and Now Trail’ where children
can compare modern objects to Victorian artefacts.
The museum is open by guided tour only, but don’t worry, our friendly guides won’t bite!
We’ll be on hand to answer any of your questions, and to tell you all of our best stories and anecdotes.
Here are some customer testimonials from our trip advisor page:
- ‘A great experience of the past’
‘Part Lawrence museum and part social history of one family (Lawrence’s) at the turn of the century in a Nott’s mining village, this museum deserves
every support, and we were very glad we went…’
