Grantham is located just off the A1 and is a short commute to Lincoln, Nottingham and Peterborough. It also attracts many London commuters, with the fast intercity train route connecting the town to London Kings Cross in around an hour.
The birthplace of former prime minister Margaret Thatcher, the town is also well known for its connection to Isaac Newton, who attended the Kings School in Grantham. Newton Fallowell founder Mark Newton is a direct descendant of the renowned scientist. The town is close to an ancient Roman road, and was the scene of Oliver Cromwell's first advantage over Royalists during the English Civil War at Gonerby Moor. The Grantham Parade and the Grantham Festival take place every year and until the 1960s there was an annual pig drive through the centre of the town.
The town is also known for making the first gingerbread biscuits – created in 1740 by William Eggleston, a baker in the town.
Nearby lie many attractive historic houses, including Belvoir Castle, Harlaxton Manor, Stoke Rochford Hall, Belton House and Belmont Tower.
Hotels and hospitality are well represented in the Grantham area. For leisure and business travellers there’s the Olde Barn Hotel in Marston, the De Vere Belton Woods Hotel with its leisre complex and golf course, the Ramada hotel and various other golf clubs. Nearby Stoke Rochford Hall won the Les Routiers Wedding Venue of the Year in 2011 and the Angel and Royal on Grantham’s High Street is widely regarded as the oldest surviving English Inn.
The food-processing industry is Grantham’s largest employer, but many people in the town travel to work in the nearby cities.
The town is favoured by parents seeking places for their children at the selective grammar schools - the Kings School and Kesteven Girls School – alongside other well regarded non selective secondary schools. The town also has direct transport connections for pupils attending private schools such as Nottingham High School and Lincoln Minster. For primary pupils, there is a wide range of schools and also a private school at Grantham Prep. Grantham College offers further education options.
The Great North Road was routed through the town in 1196, with the A1 from London to Edinburgh bypassing the town when it was built in 1962. There are fast road connections via the A1, the A52, which links the town to Nottingham in the west and to the A46 to Leicester. East into Lincolnshire, there are fast routes connecting the town to Lincoln, Boston and Sleaford.
The busy train station provides connections direct to London in little over an hour, and other regular schedules include Peterborough, Norwich, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Nottingham, Newark, Lincoln and Skegness. The East Coast mainline service connects to destinations such as York, Leeds, Sheffield, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
From the central bus station, there are connections to surrounding villages and to nearby towns in Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire.

The offices occupy three floors of a beautifully refurbished period property on Grantham’s High Street with an illuminated display of the entire property portfolio. With the largest sales team in the town, the team comprises three full time negotiators, an office-based branch manager who is always available, and a full-time accompanied viewer. Inside, visitors find comfy armchairs and a 40” TV in the café style area, which includes a constant supply of the very best bean-to-cup coffee.
Recognised as highly professional, the sales team has been ranked Number One in the town by both For Sale Sign Analysis and Rightmove Intel for the last five years.
