Have your say

Grantham is one of the best towns in Britain according to a survey published today (Wednesday) by The Times.

Our market town has come 13th in a list of 30 ‘best towns’ in the country, with its ‘grand buildings and good shops’ earning a special mention.

The newspaper also said that Grantham has a ‘quiet, affluent feel’, and went on to describe Manthorpe Road properties as ‘prized’.

Another comment was that Grantham is ‘great’ for ‘once being home to a famous grocer’s daughter’, referring to MArgaret Thatcher.

The news arrives just weeks after Grantham was named as one of the most popular commuter towns in Britain for best value property and easy access to London. The Sunday Times rated it 12th out of the top 20 most popular commuter lines out of the capital on February 10.
