Small but interesting National Trust property. The home of Sir Isaac Newton. Limited furnishings but interesting for Newtons own story. The famed apple tree is still here!

We visited here first thing on a sunny Saturday morning and were surprised to find people queueing to access the attraction. Parking is free (always a plus) and adjacent to the property. We had a good look around and purchased coffee and cakes in the on-site eatery. The staff are enthusiastic and took time to explain various quirks. There are... More

Although the house is quite small, just three rooms downstairs, it is beautiful. Enthusiastic staff/volunteers are eager to talk about Isaac Newton and the house's history. There is a small orchard with 'the tree', a film of his early life, a tea room, children's room (although not a single child in the whole complex on the day we visited) and... More

We stopped in here on our way back down south after a trip to Newcastle. We had a few hours to spare and so Woolsthorpe Manor was perfect for a visit. The house is situated in the countryside along a narrow lane with a small car park almost adjacent. The very helpful staff give you a map and lots of... More

A great place to visit. Very local for us, and home of the most famous Grantham native (with the possible exception of Maggie Thatcher). Enough of interest for most people and kept us interested and engaged.

Working our way gradually home fro Essex to Cheshire and avoiding motorways the Sat Nav took us close to this manor house so we deviated slightly. Found it to be the home of Isaac Newton and the original apple tree from which he produced his law of gravity. Although house quite small it has an interesting collection and lots of... More

There are lots of interactive areas dealing with Isaac Newton's experiments and the house although small is interesting. The NT guides are very knowledgeable and will answer any questions. The café is small but lovely cakes to eat.

It is 350 years since the apple fell on Isaac Newton's head. You can find out the story of his world changing science at Woolsthorpe Manor, Isaac's birthplace. It's worth watching the short introductory film before you enter the house to set the context although there are helpful room stewards in each room who can explain further. The famous tree... More
