Grantham

Grantham sits at the gateway to Lincolnshire with its A1 links and high speed rail service to London (just over an hour away). The town picked up two accolades when it was named as one of the top commuter towns in the country with good value property and one of the best towns to live in Britain.

This market town is steeped in history – The Angel and Royal Hotel was originally a court of King John and The George Shopping Centre, a former coaching inn, was mentioned in Charles Dickens’ Nicholas Nickleby. At its heart is the parish church of St. Wulfram’s with its soaring 282ft. spire – one of the most important town churches in England.

Sir Isaac Newton was the most famous pupil of Grantham’s Kings School. More recently, Britain’s first woman Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher was born in the town and Britain’s first policewoman served here. The original Guildhall was made up of three buildings- a Ballroom and Courtroom, a Governor’s Residence and a Jail. Now it houses a lively Arts Centre and the Tourist Information Centre.

A Town Trail of Grantham is available together with guided walks giving an insight into by-gone days and local history.

Grantham has an expanding and developing town centre, with thriving shops, indoor shopping centres and a bustling Saturday street market. A Farmers’ Market is a feature on the second Saturday each month. Out-of-town shopping can be enjoyed at Downtown Superstore with its own garden centre, cafes and Boundary Mill store, located near the A1.

Just north of Grantham is Belton House, a Restoration country house owned by The National Trust, with 25 rooms open to the public. A 1300 acre landscaped park, formal gardens and woodland adventure playground complete the attraction.

Near to Grantham you can also visit Belvoir Castle, ancestral home of the Dukes of Rutland, the beautiful Easton Walled Gardens and Woolsthorpe Manor – birthplace of Sir Isaac Newton.
