Explore Europe


Just three miles away is the ancient market town of Grantham, home of Sir Isaac Newtown and Lady Margaret Thatcher. Grantham also serves as a rail and bus hub for Britain and beyond.  You will enjoy:

  • Access to The Bistro college pub and The Gregory Arms, an upscale gastropub
  • Bus service at the end of the lane at Gregory Pub, taking you wherever you need to go
  • One hour by rail to London and Nottingham East Midlands Airport

Grantham is just thirty miles from the University of Leicester, forty miles from the University of Nottingham and University of Lincoln, seventy-five miles from Cambridge, and eighty-five miles from Oxford. 

“This setting provides the ideal respite while researching, studying and rejuvenating.  However, should a resident want to explore beyond Harlaxton, all of England is a train ride away from the ancient market town of Grantham and of course the resources of Europe are a relatively short trip away.”

--Dr. Clay Motley, former associate director for academics for the Mahurin Honors College
