Darwin’s Down House + The Queen’s Arms

Megan drove us into another world today. We saw, I for the first time, the rooms where Charles Darwin worked and lived, including the study where he wrote On the Origin of the Species

So, this may not be the study, and I may not have played billiards, but then again…

But these ARE a small part of the Down House gardens where we walked this afternoon.
Elizabeth I came to town for a christening in the late 1550’s, so this pub, named for her, has been around for awhile. I recommend the Fish & Chips, and Megan would tell you the star is the Wagyu burger. Anyhow, lovely staff, brilliant place.

    Hi,
    I see you are in the UK right now, are you planning to visit Scotland? If you are let me know as I have recently moved to Edinburgh. We met in Athens at Melissa, as I was taking over some of your English classes.
    Best, Sally
