D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum

The museum is currently closed. We can't welcome you in person right now but we have a selection of learning activities and digital resources on our Events, Exhibitions and Resources page.

D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum


The D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum is the childhood home to the author D.H. Lawrence. The Museum is located in the ex-mining town of Eastwood and surrounded by the lovely landscapes that influenced Lawrence’s life and books.  Visit us and find out more – whether you’ve read any Lawrence books or not!

For 2019, we are introducing self-guided tours, in addition to our guided tours.  

Check out our Visit Us section to find out more about visiting the Museum.  This will also inform you of any scheduled closures we may have for group bookings.

Nottingham Literary Greats

Nottinghamshire is home to several literary greats, including D.H. Lawrence and Lord Byron. Nottingham’s status as a UNESCO City of Literature celebrates the impact and contribution these local writers made to the literary world.

Check out Visit Nottinghamshire’s new video celebrating our literary greats. We recommend that you plan a trip to the county to experience these amazing heritage sites, including the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum.
