This has just shot to my number one favourite National Trust property. From the car park to the toilets, the site is well proportioned, set out and maintained. The staff and guides are so friendly, extremely well informed and helpful. David is particularly note-worthy as he really helped us make the most of the interactive Science displays. We loved the...

What a serendipitous visit the home is excellent but it was the staff that were so warm and friendly they did not wait to be asked question they were explaining all the time the room they were guides for it was clear they enjoyed visitors and made the day a memorable visit. Well done to all the staff from the... More

The number of physics lessons where we have been taught about Newton's laws. Here you can actually see the tree where the apple dropped, resulting in the discovery of the laws of gravity. Quite inspiring, and in its own way similar to visiting the homes of Shakespeare in Stratford. This is a small property by they have packed in the... More

The attraction was seeing Newton's birthplace and famous apple tree that inspired his theories on gravity. On arrival, we were pleased to find a well restored medieval manor home. The property dated back to the 11th century so by the time Newton's parents bought it in the early 1600's, it was already 600 years old! There are nice exhibits on... More

I moved to Grantham some 30 years ago and confess to visiting only once, very soon afterwards. Considering the relatively small site, a lot is packed in - the house, the apple tree (I have a direct descendant of this tree in my garden), and a range of interactive and educational rooms, including the discovery centre, where I earned I...

The site is small but very interesting. There are activities to do which would be educational for children. Refreshment facilities are a bit limited but there is a picnic area.

Excellent staff, who were engaging and very informative. Superb interactive exhibits that were good for children and adults trying to remember schoolboy physics. A small relatively humble place where one of the greatest minds ever lived grew up and carried out earth - shattering science. A must see for anyone with even the slightest curiosity about science and the universe.

You'd think that Sir Isaac Newton was born into a learned family. But that is far from the truth. The visit tells you the story of a premature baby, a sickly child who fought against all the odds simply to reach adulthood. A young adult who just couldn't get to grips with his farming family tradition yet amazed the world... More
