Woolsthorpe is now closed for the winter

The winter closure at Woolsthorpe means that our house conservation team can get stuck in to a deep winter clean and some much needed conservation repair work. Woolsthorpe Manor has been welcoming admirers of Isaac Newton since his own lifetime and it is now our duty to ensure that the building and its contents are preserved, so that they may inspire our visitors in the future.

Dogs on leads are welcome in the car parks and water is provided for thirsty canine visitors. Although we're fond of dogs, we're sorry but we aren't able to allow dogs (except for assistance dogs) on site at Woolsthorpe Manor.
