When I visited the manor I was staying in Hull, a 2 hour train ride away. I wasn't sure that it would be worth the effort but it was. The manor is in such a beautiful location with a plethora of scientific history. I enjoyed...More

This ancestoral home of Sir Isaac Newton is a must. It is full of history and gives a value insight of him. What lets it down are the facilities for visitors. For a National Trust place facilities were disapointing. The tea rooms are very basic,...More

Authentic place of Newton's birth, fits his life it with what was happening in the country. Fascinating Guide told - us so much. House - altered after Newton left but before he was really famous. Film = good, do watch. Tree? Unlikely to be original...More

We went on a Tuesday when the house is closed to the public but the science centre, film room and gardens open. What a great little place, spent ages in the science room working out all the experiments and games, I certainly enjoyed revisiting some...More

The place is a restored cottage. The rooms have some props in them but I felt it was aimed at children. My wife and I read and saw everything in 20 mins which was half as long as it took is to get out of...More

Nice little house and grounds, good value for what you get however the cafe is very pricey. Wish the science centre was bigger but all in all well explained. The Apple tree is a wonderful gnarled old thing! Worth a stop if you're passing

The Manor is well restored and presents a very good look at Sir Isaac, a bit about his birth and a fair bit about his research into white light and gravity (and yes the apple tree - or a descendant thereof - is there). The...More

Fascinating insight into the life and times of Sir Isaac Newton including seeing the famous apple tree. Definitely worth a stop, but be aware that it has only a limited cafe on site if you were thinking about stopping for a food break.

Excellent national trust site. Very informative and kids enjoyed it too. The experiments really captured the childrens minds.

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.
