I am ashamed to say the motive for the visit was to use my membership. We just hadn't found time to fit I many places this year. But what an interesting and surprising site. Start off at the film room. The site is small but the bonus is how well everything is explained concerning Sir Isaac. The volunteers are all... More

We spent a few hours here learning all about Sir Isaac Newton, his ideas and experiments. The house was interesting with good guides and information. It was fun trying the 'hands on' activities in the barn.

I took my family there as my older daughter was to write an essay about Sir Isaac Newton. The inspiration and information she got during the day helped her big time not just to finish her essay but to enjoy it and dig in with real interest. The Science Discovery Centre is great fun, the house and the garden is... More

We had a family day out here and we started with a pre-booked 45 minute guided tour of the Manor House where Sir Isaac Newton was born on 25th December 1642. We learnt so much about Isaac and his farming family and to stand in the very room where he used to split light from his window with a prism... More

I booked in advance for my husband and I to go on a tour of the birthplace and home of Sir Isaac Newton, which was free to us as National Trust members. A warning for future visitors in the winter- wrap up well, it is cold in there. Mind you, it was a particularly cold day when we visited. We... More

Visited on a cold January day on impulse. As NT members we didn't have to pay. Surprised at how family friendly it was. We didn't have children with us but those that were there were having a good time. Guide was very informative and friendly. The National Trust have managed to retain a lot of original features and created a... More

Great place for a family to visit. The interactive science center was excellent and our kids still talk about it months later.

I took my grandchildren 11 and 9 in the summer. They found it very interesting and liked all the interactive things to do. I have lived in the area virtually all my life and had never been and was surprised that such a small place kept us busy for a couple of hours. The history of Sir Isaac Newton was... More

We took our science-mad 7-year old and his 10-year brother here in the half-term holidays. Was even better than we expected. had a really interesting guided tour of the house - really knweldgeable and engaging guide - even kept our youngest interested all the way round, and usually he gets bored with things like that. After the tour of the... More
