Seasonal fun in Grantham
Make lasting memories together
Whatever time of year you stay with us at Belton Woods, there’s always plenty of things to do in Grantham. Here’s some of our favourite places to visit for each season…
Easton Walled Gardens
See a sea of flowers
Visit Easton between January and March and you’ll be greeted with a carpet of snowdrop flowers winding their way through a network of ash trees. The 450-year-old gardens are home to more than ten varieties of the delicate and colourful plants, so make sure you have your camera ready.
Guildhall Arts Centre
Spend the evening at a show
With everything from Shakespeare to live music and pantomime to comedy, there’s something to suit everyone’s taste at the Guildhall Arts Centre. If you’re looking for things to do in Grantham, make sure you add some drama to your stay by catching a performance on the big stage on St Peter’s Hill.
Spend a day in the sun
Wyndham Park is the perfect place to enjoy the Lincolnshire sun. Enjoy a picnic on the grass or hire a cycle and pedal the day away. The paddling pool is a popular spot for kids, except on Wednesdays when the Model Boat Club meet to display their pride and joy on the water.
Rolls Royce Rally
A spot of vintage fun
One of the best things to do in Grantham for motoring enthusiasts, the Rolls Royce Rally at the beautiful Burghley House is considered the largest Rolls Royce and Bentley meet in the world. A chance to get up close to the classiest of classic cars and meet more than 70 specialist traders and share your passion.
Bonfire Night at the Engine Yard
Light up your autumn getaway
Belvoir Castle opens to the public after hours for one of the best fireworks displays in Lincolnshire. The faux castle is home to the Fireworks Championship in August, so the standard for rockets and illuminations here is always high.
Stroll around Grade I gardens
There’s no better time to see the impressive grounds at Grimsthorpe than during autumn. See hues of brown and orange in a garden designed by world renowned landscaper Capability Brown or cycle the paths around 3,000 acres of the estate for your chance to see buzzards, red kites and deer too.
Christmas at Belton House
Get in the festive spirit
Enjoy a magical light show on the grounds of a 17th century country home and keep the cold weather at bay with a delicious hot chocolate or spiced winter warmer. Easily one of the best things to do in Grantham if you’re spending Christmas in the area.
Brentingby Gin Distillery
Stay in with a gin
Get out from the cold and into the warmth of Grantham’s visitor-friendly gin distillery. Try your hand at making your own juniper-infused creation or join a cocktail masterclass for a tasting session with a difference. The choice is yours.
