The D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum

8a Victoria Street, Eastwood, NG16 3AW, United Kingdom | 0115 9173824 | Website

Venue Description

The D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum is the house where D.H. Lawrence was born in 1885. It has been lovingly restored to how it would have looked when he was born here. As a fine example of a Victorian miner's house, it feels as though the family could come back at any moment.


The Birthplace Museum has limited access for disabled visitors. As it is an authentic Victorian miner's cottage the museum has two sets of stairs and no lift, so there are some parts of the museum that some visitors would not be able to access. There is however a virtual tour which guides can show visitors in the ground floor shop and also found online here: https://www.lleisure.co.uk/d-h-lawrence-birthplace-museum/visit-us/virtual-tour/
