Best known as the birthplace of both Sir Isaac Newton and Margaret Thatcher, the lively market town of Grantham has been a popular spot with history enthusiasts for centuries. With charming period buildings at every turn, Grantham is home to England’s oldest inn, the Angel and Royal (where you can still spend the night today) and one of the country’s largest medieval churches, St. Wulfram’s Church. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and bars to keep you entertained too and be sure to snap up a packet of delicious Grantham Gingerbread on your visit!
