We thought this would be a quick hours visit to see Isaac Newton's house. Turned out to be a marathon session in rooms with experiments in light, inclined planes, acceleration and gravity. Fascinating. Take the children, (probably over 8 years) and they will love it.

This is an easy place to visit when travelling up or down the A1 in Lincolnshire. The photo in the NT handbook makes it look like an isolated farmhouse with nothing to see, but there is lots to see and do. A wonderful place for...More

Best to ring them before setting off. We went earlier this year and they had guided tours. They might have more going on as Summer approaches but always best to ring ahead and check.

Yes there is a taxi outside of the station but it will cost approximately £20 from Grantham to the manor. Get a bus if you can as the bus station is walking distance from the train station.
