Tour guides are knowledgable and bring a clear perspective on Newton's early life. Very engaging activities and experiments for people of all ages. We had a great day. Coffee is horrible though.

If your driving come down the A1 & come off at Grantham. It’s about 5 miles from there, all sign posted, plus whilst your in the area, I also recommend going to see Belton House. Hope this helps !
