Stamford has been named as the best place to live in Britain by The Sunday Times! Reporter Matt Rudd was given a tour of the town by Stamford Tourist Information Centres Mary Davies, in the supplement, titled Best Places to Live in Britain, the report said: “The ducks are quacking and the river sparkles in the spring sunshine. Across the green of Stamford’s famous water meadows, young families and couples enjoy the day, sipping takeaway coffees from the cosy independent cafes, such as the Fine Food Store, that line the gloriously Georgian high street.
“It feels familiar — the town has starred in period dramas from Middlemarch to Pride and Prejudice, just one lucky by-product of Stamford being named Britain’s first conservation area. The architecture and honey-stone streets really are magnificent, but that’s not all Stamford has to recommend it; this friendly town offers good organic produce as well as designer boutiques.” Staying in Stamford this summer, why not visit the Stamford Shakespeare Company?
Also, this in 2013 Grantham has again been named one of the best towns in Britain – this time by The Times. The newspaper published a list of the 30 best towns in the country, naming Grantham 13th, stating , the town centre has ‘grand buildings and good shops’ and ‘contains a quiet, affluent feel’, Grantham is ‘great’ for ‘once being home to a famous grocer’s daughter’ and ‘Baroness Thatcher’s former school, Grantham Girls’ is still a huge draw’. With an array of events at the Guildhall Arts Centre and a slice a history on our doorstep at National Trust properties Belton House and Sir Isaac Newtons Birthplace Woolsthorpe Manor, they area is certainly worthy of a visit. September 2014 Grantham will host the Gravity Fields Festival.
