Short walk around. Very exciting guide! Strange feeling to seeing so ancient apple tree and Isaac's drawings on the walls inside the house!

This is a fascinating place where the story of Sir Isaac Newton and his amazing discoveries is clearly portrayed for all ages of visitors. The volunteers in the house itself were very interesting to talk to. And the practical experiments were fun...even for the grandparents!
