“Apple Tree”
Review of Woolsthorpe Manor

Woolsthorpe Manor
Ranked #2 of 24 things to do in Grantham
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Visited this on the way back north from London. Children wanted to see the actual Newton's famous apple tree as they studied gravity in school. And there it was, the actual tree (still growing - Isaac Newton was born in 1643), still bearing lots of apples.

Interesting visit, especially with the Science Discovery room which children enjoyed. Not a big site. easily explored in half a day or less.

Recommended.

This is one of the best places I have ever taken my grandchildren to visit. The science room was just amazing with interest for us all. The hands on experiments that Isacc Newton disccovered were excellent with good descriptions and very well thought out. The garden was well laid out with a children's discovery sheet to follow and of course the famous tree to see. The house was well planned for visiitors and the guides were knowledgable and friendly . The Film room and children's room were well planned, and the little cafe produced enough to make a simple meal of soup and bun with a cake. Well done.

Lovely small manor house set in rural surroundings with a number of out buildings, and the home of Isaac Newton. The upper rooms are quite small, and can therefore get a little congested during busy periods, but the stewards do seem to try and control the flow of visitors to make the visit a little more enjoyable. Don't miss the famous apple tree in the front garden, nor the Discovery Centre.
