Grantham Area Guide
Grantham is complemented by acres of picturesque local countryside where families enjoy waterside picnics by the River Witham in the warmer months, while cycling and walking routes offer wonderful views of the surrounding area.
As a historic market town, Grantham benefits from several fascinating sites of historical importance, such as the 300-year-old Belton House, boasting 36 acres of gardens and 1,300 acres of parklands to be explored. The Grantham Canal passes quaint villages, picturesque countryside and the attractive Belvoir Castle, while the 400-year old Easton Walled Gardens are set in a charming 12 acre valley and are ripe for exploration.
The impressive farmers’ market is held on the second Saturday of the month, at the heart of Grantham town centre. The architecturally-beautiful Guildhall Arts Centre hosts a range of shows and performances covering dance, drama, Hollywood film and pantomime. Further entertainment can be found at the nearby Grantham Bowl, a newly-refurbished 12 lane, ten pin bowling alley which features an arcade, pool tables, and American diner.
The Downtown Superstore includes leading home brands and a large garden centre and adjoining café, serving a range of hot and cold snacks, including homemade cakes.
A £100million designer outlet village is due to open in Grantham within the next three years. This state-of-the-art 270,000 sqft development will present 130 luxury brand stores, alongside charming cafés and family-friendly restaurants.
