Very little for kids but fine if an older visitor perhaps on a sunny day. Just not my sort of thing.

A small National Trust property with not the usual restaurant/café but worth a visit if you are interested in this period of history. Interesting scientific displays.

We really enjoyed our visit here - the birthplace of Isaac Newton. Fascinating hands-on displays, lots of information, really interesting period home, and, of course, that apple tree! Well worth a visit - try the cream tea...

Yes there is a taxi outside of the station but it will cost approximately £20 from Grantham to the manor. Get a bus if you can as the bus station is walking distance from the train station.
