Why move to Grantham?

Grantham is a historic and pretty Lincolnshire market town located centrally in the UK. It offers beautiful family homes on attractive developments on the fringe of the town and an abundance of idyllic surrounding villages with with the surrounding open countryside providing the perfect backdrop. In recent years, thanks to the high speed train connecting our town to Kings Cross in just over an hour, Grantham has increasingly appealed to people moving out of London, who come because of the improved quality of life, better value for money and excellent schools. Grantham also has excellent links into Lincolnshire and further afield to London via the A1 Great North Road and many rail routes making it an ideal relocation solution.

With Lincolnshire being one of the mainstays of the grammar school system, Grantham's education system is a compelling reason to make your home here. Today, young people have plenty to choose from in all areas at all levels. For boys the Kings Grammar School, for girls Kesteven and Grantham Girls School and Walton Girls High School. The latest addition to Grantham's education system is the Priory Ruston Academy which strives to help every pupil reach their potential. Oakham and Stamford private Schools are also easily accessible.

Living in Grantham also means no shortage of leisure, cultural and sporting opportunities, concert venues, a cinema, the impressive Meres Leisure Centre and swimming complex and a fine selection of gyms.
