With its unique place in the history of science, Down House, the home of Charles Darwin, is one of the major visitor attractions in the South East. See the study where Darwin wrote 'On the Origin of Species', still as it was when he worked here, and stroll through the extensive gardens that so inspired the great scientist.

Equally fascinating are the glimpses you get into the life of the Darwins' in the family rooms. And there's an exciting interactive multimedia tour, narrated by David Attenborough, to tell you more about how Darwin developed his ideas.

For anyone with an interest in science and evolution, this is a fascinating family day out in Kent.
