About 3 miles northeast of Grantham, Belton House is a dream location for English period dramas – indeed, the mansion crops up in numerous period romps from the BBC, including Jane Eyre, Tom Jones and the Colin Firth version of Pride and Prejudice . Built in 1688 in classic Restoration style, the house features some stunning period details, including ornate woodcarvings attributed to the master Dutch carver Grinling Gibbons, as well as elegant formal gardens. Centrebus 9 (15 minutes) and Stagecoach bus 1 run here from near Grantham train station.
