National Trust house where Isaac Newton was born. Was originally a small farmhouse and is certainly not a NT stately home. Guided tour is good and quite a thrill to look at light through prisms in the room where he studied

You get a real sense of the period of Issac Newton's birthplace. The buildings, grounds, interactive equipment and displays make this an excellent visit.

A spare hour or two gave us the opportunity to visit & see Newton's home and the famous tree. Had an excellent and informative chat with Colin in the science exhibition section.

What a fun morning doing the Easter egg hunt with the kids. They loved every minute of it. The house was also very interesting for the grown ups with lots of interesting information & well informed volunteers.
