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!



The museum is open to the general public on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from 10am till 4pm.  You don’t have to book ahead to visit, it is generally fine to just turn up on these days.  Please just check the website beforehand, to be sure we aren’t closed for a group booking: these will always be stated here.

The museum is available on other days for large groups, education tours, special events and hire.  If you would like to bring a large group, arrange an education tour, or a guided tour please give us a call or drop us an email.
