Grantham may be best known as the birthplace of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, whilst Sir Isaac Newton was also born in the nearby village of Woolsthorpe by Colsterworth. Grantham was originally a Saxon village and grew into a market town during the 11 century, being known for their successful leather and wool trade. Grantham also has a number of historic houses and attractions, Simon Jenkins once described the St Wulfram’s Church that towers over the historic town as ‘the finest steeple in England.’ If sightseeing isn’t for you, the high street in Grantham has a plethora of retail shops, local independent businesses and an array of different restaurants to choose from. There are also plans for an 125 million pounds designer shopping outlet in Grantham which is hoping to be completed in 2022; drawing in visitors from local cities, as well as bringing a luxury retail experience to Grantham.
This picturesque market town boasts more than just a few claims to fame, however; residents can also benefit from good transport links, with local hubs in Nottingham (22 miles east) and Lincoln (23 miles north). As developed estate and letting agents in this area, we find that a huge advantage is that the capital, London, is just over an hour away by train, giving commuters and day-trippers plenty of options.
Whether you have a pet companion or simply just enjoy a nice countryside walk, Grantham is also extremely scenic, with a lot of stunning countryside right on its doorstep. Just some of these include Belton House, Ponton Park Wood, and Woodland Trust sites Londonthorpe and Alma Park Woods.
