The National Trust’s Woolsthorpe Manor has opened its doors early to visitors in time for half-term.
Last year the 17th-century birthplace of Sir Isaac Newton had its best year yet, with nearly 34,000 visitors.
Custodian Jannette Warrener said: “We’re opening even earlier this year for half-term, and our first event will be a stargazing evening on Friday, February 22. Bookings for this are going really well, so if you want to come you need to let us know as soon as possible.”
February visitors to Woolsthorpe will be able to see snowdrops in the orchards and also find out about the way Isaac’s mother Hannah Newton might have lived with a ‘diary entry’ created by Woolsthorpe’s Conservation Manager, Margaret Winn, pictured with costumed volunteer Rebecca Mehew.
The Manor House, Science Discovery Centre and grounds are open from 11am to 3pm but closed on Mondays and Tuesdays until March 24. They are open every day from March 25, 11am-5pm, (Manor House closed on Tuesdays).
