OK, I know, Grantham is not the cultural or touristic centre of the world and probably never will be...in fact, it was once voted the most boring town in England! but being my hometown it still has a special place in my heart and if you are looking for somewhere off the beaten track to meet real British people, doing normal British things and enjoying typical British restaurants and nightlife, then why not stop off and have a look around. After all there are a few famous firsts from this town: did you know that Grantham is the hometown of Britain's first woman Primeminister? It is where the first policewoman worked and home to the first traffic light. Apart from that it is also where Isaac Newton (the great physics man) went to school and where the Dambuster's raid was planned. There are many hidden treasures in this town waiting to be discovered and of course for me the best thing - my family!
On Saturdays the market comes to town bringing life to Wide Westgate.
Around town there are National Trust gardens and castles: just down the road is Belvoir Castle and Belton House.
Grantham has an interesting museum.
St. Wulfram's church has one of the highest spires in Britain, you can climb up the stairs and see the chained library.
The market place conduit has a long history.
This is one of those more traditional British pubs where you will find the walls decorated with local memorabilia and... more travel advice
This pub is always packed out at the weekend and is also great for lunch during the week. more travel advice
