Stamford and Woolsthorpe Manor, Lincolnshire
Woolsthorpe is no ordinary Lincolnshire farmhouse – in 1655, the plague sent Isaac Newton back from university to the place he was born for 18 months, where he worked in solitude and experiment. His interesting life and story is celebrated here, from childhood to the discoveries of his Years of Wonders. Stand in the room where he used a prism to split sunlight into the colours of the rainbow, exploring the nature of light. From the window you can even see the apple tree in the orchard which inspired his theory of gravity. Includes a lunch stop at Stamford, one of the finest stone towns in England, home to a variety of independent traders and recognised retailers. A favourite with film and television producers due to its pretty facades, the town has appeared in numerous TV productions.
