Great wee place to visit to get a feel of Newtons early days, with the apple tree the highlight. The manor house tour is very small, but interesting, although none of the furniture is original.

This was an enjoyable visit with relatives who had not been here before. The Manor House is decorated as it would have been for the period. The Science & discovery centre is fun & interesting for all ages. Small cafe onsite also

Spent a couple of enjoyable hours here with the kids. Staff were super friendly and knowledgeable Not a big site (after the manor tour and film room not a huge heap to do) but the science centre is well done and the attending guides made it really fun for the kids. Took some photos by 'the tree'. Good little cafe... More

Very family friendly with lots to interest children of all ages. The House was closed on a Tuesday so we could only walk around the outside and then onto the orchard to see the tree Isaac Newton sat under. Delicious food at the cafe before or after visiting the activity room. Fascinating. It will not take you very long to... More

Great place to visit for a couple of hours, inexpensive with great interactive experiments for budding Isaac Newtons or anyone with an interest in his work. The staff are very friendly and informative. Plus there a nice little tea room. Support the National Trust.

As a member of The National Trust it was free for us (2x family days to a National Trust place and it will cost the same as your membership, it is a no-brainer) Who would have thought that the original tree that Sir Issac Newton saw the famous apple drop from is still there. We spent 2 hours taking our... More

Highly recommended for a visit of around two hours. The house itself isn't spectacular and could get crowded on a busy day. But the Isaac Newton connection is fascinating and it is wonderful that the famous Apple Tree is still there, be it a relation of the one Newton would have known.
