Join us for an exciting day at the National Trust property, Grantham House! This will be the very first time the property opens its doors to the public for exclusive tours of the house and the gardens. You can be the first to explore this beautiful historic property and its extraordinary gardens.

Grantham House is a stunning Grade I listed townhouse steeped in history. The house is Medieval in origin and sits within Castlegate, a prestigious area of Grantham town during the Medieval period. Over the centuries
the house and the gardens have been altered to fit the styles of the time with some personal touches from its owners.

Relax and unwind in the peaceful grounds of the House and take a wander through the picturesque woodland way. Enjoy some delightful refreshments on a beautiful autumns day in September. There will be toilet facilities available and dogs are more than welcome, provided they are kept on a lead.

For car users, there are many car parks located in Grantham; the nearest to the House being Watergate (NG31 6NS), Castlegate (NG31 6SN), Conduit Lane (NG31 6PB) and Welham Street (NG31 6QU).
All the walks and tours are free but your donations are greatly appreciated. Due to the house still being under renovation, disabled access may be
