We recently visited Woolsthorpe Manor and were pleasantly surprised. As members of the National Trust we have visited many properties, this is one that we had yet to visit. The birthplace and home of Sir Isaac Newton still has the original apple tree in the small orchard where he discovered gravity. He made many other discoveries during his time here... More

We found the place very informative about his early life the volunteers had a great knowledge and are very eager to help you learn. I found the small cafe to be very cheap in comparison to some places a... More

What an interesting place Woolsthorpe Manor is! Not far off the A1, down a narrow country lane stands a farmhouse and outbuildings with an amazing tale to tell - the birthplace of Isaac Newton. On a half hour guided tour of the house we saw his famous bedroom where he performed many of his experiments with light and wrote his... More

During summer holidays special days were arranged to cater for children. We had a great time doing, trying and making all sorts. The volunteers are brilliant with children of all ages. It is not a large place but there was a lot to amuse and interest everyone.

There was a mix of outside and indoor activities including the house Newton was born and raised in and... More
