Grantham Certificated Locations

Known as the gateway to Lincolnshire, Grantham has been named one of Britain's best towns to live in. It's a popular commuter town, thanks to its transport links to the capital, and it's also an excellent place to visit, as it boasts plenty of attractions and lovely green areas.

Over the centuries, Grantham has had a number of notable residents. Sir Isaac Newton was a pupil at Grantham's Kings School, and he was born at Woolsthorpe Manor, a National Trust property just south of Grantham.

Margaret Thatcher, the first British Prime Minister, was born in the town and Britain's first policewoman, Edith Smith, was appointed here in 1915.
