Eating and shopping

Scone with cream and jam

Science and cake - what's not to like? 

It wouldn't be a day out without a cream tea and a chance to browse some quirky things in the shop. We're just a few minutes off the A1, so Woolsthorpe's a great place to drop in if you're on the road. Beware, though, some people stop for a quick bite and stay for hours.
