Our visit Eastwood included the Birthplace Museum which was excellent! Time to look round the small museum depicting Lawrence's early life, a short DVD and then a personally and very professionally guided tour of his first home on Victoria St Eastwood. Our guide was considerate,...More

Just a few minutes walk from Eastwood Hall hotel; £5 combined entrance to this and the Birthplace Museum nearby, run by the Borough Council (not private). The very interesting displays about Lawrence's life give much insight into the experiences which informed his works, not least...More
