Heritage Open Day at Woolsthorpe Manor

Woolsthorpe Manor from the Orchard

Have you lived in the area all your life, regularly walking past his statue in Grantham, but never visited Isaac Newton’s home? Join us for FREE on Saturday 14 September as part of the Heritage Open Days nationwide event.

Discover how the world changed at Woolsthorpe Manor. Here Isaac Newton saw the apple fall and began unravelling the secrets of light, laying the foundations for some of the greatest scientific theories of all time. Newton himself described his Year of Wonders at Woolsthorpe as his most creative period. 

One of the world’s greatest scientists, Isaac Newton’s scientific legacy is hugely significant.  Let us share his story and science with you on your visit

You can visit THE gravity-inspiring tree, get busy in the hands-on science centre and find stories of Isaac, man and boy, in the Manor house.  Upstairs in the hayloft you’ll find an exhibition of Apollo 11; where you can watch the Moon landing, discover the role of Newtonian physics and take a #SpaceSelfie with Buzz Aldrin!

The event runs from 11am until 4.30pm on Saturday 14 September.

Heritage Open Days brings together over 2,000 organisations to celebrate England’s history and culture. Every year in September, places across the country throw open their doors as part of the Heritage Open Days event.  It’s a chance to visit places and try out new experiences for FREE.

We welcome visitors from all corners of the globe and hope to see you on Heritage Open Day.
