Woolsthorpe Manor information
Newton fans may feel the gravitational pull of the great man's former home, about 8 miles south of Grantham. The 17th-century house contains reconstructions of Newton's rooms; the apple that inspired the theory of gravity allegedly fell from the tree in the garden. There's a nifty kids' science room and a cafe. Take Centrebus 9 from Grantham (20 minutes, five to six Monday to Saturday).
