Isaac Newton was born in this modest manor house in 1642 and he made many of his most important discoveries about light and gravity here in the plague years of 1666-7.
As well as his ground-breaking scientific work, Newton went on to roles as diverse as a Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge Univeristy, President of the Royal Society and Master of the Royal Mint.
The Manor House, his family home, is furnished as a 17th-century farmhouse might have been at this time. You can still see the famous apple tree that inspired his thoughts on gravity from the bedroom window, and explore some of his ideas for yourself in the Science Discovery Centre.
