A lovely National Trust treasure. We really felt we "knew the man" when we left Isaac Newton's home. Lovely staff and so willing to share their information. The orchard "where the apple fell" was magical and peaceful. Lovely atmosphere and well worth a visit.

National Trust run home of Sir Isaac Newton. Very informative guides throughout the house. Plenty for the kids to see and do in the Science Centre. I learnt new stuff too! Nice little coffee shop and a gift shop with the usual NT goods.

Best to ring them before setting off. We went earlier this year and they had guided tours. They might have more going on as Summer approaches but always best to ring ahead and check.
