Belton House, Grantham

4.5
#1 of 19 in Things to do in Grantham
Historic Site Tourist Spot
One of the most complete examples of a typical English country dwelling, Belton House is surrounded by landscaped gardens with pathways that ribbon through the woodlands and park. The house was constructed in the 17th-century by Sir John Brownlow, who, despite his great wealth, chose to build modestly. However, the interior was outfitted with the most innovative designs for the time, including sash windows. The family's social status fluctuated from barons to earls and back again, but the textiles and the decor have remained largely the same since 1688. Nowadays, the National Trust owns and maintains the site, keeping it open to the public during daylight hours.

  • Barely scratched the surface of this NT location. Great adventure play area for kids with the usual ice-cream cafe options. Kids even engaged with a craft activity which is a result. Didn't get in the house as only had the afternoon but will definitely be back to explore more.
  • Good National Trust property. Great grounds and adventure play park for children. Well worth a visit. Cafe / restaurant gets very busy and was not especially clean (lots of stuff dropped on floor).
  • I have a three year old boy and regularly take him to Belton House for the excellent play areas both inside and out. Hard to find better. Become a member and it becomes a cheap day trip.
  • Fun for the whole family, from the extensive play area to the historic house, not to mention the gardens, shops, and cafes.... Always a great day out. Don't miss out. There's always something going on.
  • If you have kids between 5-12 who like playing outside.... GO HERE! The adventure playground is amazing. The grounds are lovely to walk round. There's loads to do. Perfect for a family day out. Dog can come to but has to be on lead and not aloud in several areas.
