D.H. Lawrence Heritage Centre

Step back in time to the age of the Victorians and discover more about one of Nottinghamshire's most famous writer's D.H. Lawrence at D.H. Lawrence Heritage. This multi award winning visitor attraction includes a museum, heritage centre, temporary art gallery, gift shop and a bistro for a truelly novel day!

The re-creation of the birthplace and early home of the writer D.H. Lawrence gives a fascinating glimpse into the cramped realities of a Victorian mining family. Take a guided tour of the D.H. Lawrence Birthplace Museum to discover more about this famous writer's working class roots and the community that influenced his life and work. Visitors of all ages can enjoy this journey back in time, with Family Friendly tours available at weekends and selected school holidays.

While at the D.H. Lawrence Heritage Centre, nearby, you will discover more about the writer's life and works and the mining community which influenced his works. Be inspired by the on-site Rainbow Gallery, with its changing exhibition programme. After all that you'll probably be hungry so grab a tasty bite to eat at the D.H. Lawrence Bistro and a souvenir or two from our well stocked gift shops. For the more energetic take a stroll along the Blue Line Trail, a 3 mile self guided walk, which incorporates 4 of the Lawrence family homes and 8 other related sites.
