We decided to take a trip out to Woolsthorpe whilst on our summer hols in Lincoln (National Trust membership, yay!) and chose a beautiful sunny day. The Science Centre was excellent, plenty to keep us occupied and refresh our GCSE knowledge of light and motion. The Manor house itself was beautifully maintained and full of interesting titbits of information pertaining... More

The home of Sir Issac Newton is worth a visit for a couple of hours. The entrance fee of £6.90 for Adults and £3.45 for children makes it good value especially if you have a family who enjoy interactive science. The café is also good and we had 3 pasties costing £4 each that tasted good when warmed up and... More

Very informative. The science centre is excellent and kept all of us enthralled for quite some time. The cafe is far too small, however, and there was almost nothing for people like me who cannot have wheat or gluten. The house had a lovely, simple trail for our 5 year old and we loved the laid back approach that allowed... More

Came across Woolsthorpe Manor by accident, we had a National Trust membership and decided to call. A fascinating piece of history based around Isaac Newton and the apple tree. The house is full of real period treasures, on two levels. A bit difficult for elderly people who are not so good at walking. The cafe was bit dingy and no... More

I visited here on Friday and was enchanted by the house, and also by being able to see the famous apple tree. The house contains displays about Newton and his era, aimed primarily at children but worth a read. There are other scientific displays and play areas in the outbuildings. The cafe was a disappointment - the area was far... More

We visited this National Trust property on a very rainy day , it was interesting to see where the great Man Issac Newton lived and to see the famous apple tree. Its quite small but has out buildings which have been put to use for scientific info, which you can do hands on. There is a café there and very... More

We happened upon Isaac Newton's home while traveling in northern England, and were very happy to have made a stop to see it. It was a family day there, so there were many kids there to participate in a range of science related activities. We were very impressed with all that they did! Make sure to watch the introductory film... More

This is where gravity was invented. Before Newton decided to shoot the apple of his own head with a pea shooter everything just floated about. Dairy farming was a nightmare with many a sore eye and forget about lynching or drowning witches it did not work! Now if you believe the above you need to go here urgently. What's not... More
