Guided tour of Darwins Childhood Garden


Darwin's Childhood Garden, owned and managed by Shropshire Wildlife Trust, is the only remaining fragment of the Darwin's family garden at The Mount House in Shrewsbury. Join us for a guided tour around the local area and the garden to learn more about how this site influenced young Charles Darwin.

This fragment of the Darwin family garden was bought by Shropshire Wildlife Trust in 2013. While much of the formerly extensive grounds attached to The Mount, his birthplace and childhood home, have disappeared under housing, other parts survived in private gardens.

Two identical tours will take place at 11am and 2pm. Please select the tour you would like to book onto during the registration process.

Due to the steepness of the site, we only open it for planned guided tours as access is limited.
