All’s well that ends in the steady town of Grantham, where the United Kingdom royals stop over to rest on their way to distant  places.

I stopped over at the Guildhall Town Centre, remniscent of a building in Sagamu (picture above).

Hometown of the legendary Conservative Prime Minister, Thatcher, Margaret, in the heart of Isaac Newton’s school town, Linconshire, I had quite a learning experience.

Visiting the  Kesteven and Sleaford High School where Thatcher won loads of prizes, I was more than inspired.

Another highlight of my trip to Grantham, Lincolnshire was stopping over at Alli’s Breakfast House for a massive brunch. The ambience was nice with a framed photograph of Central Park, New York.

I had the mixed steak with chips, gammon, bacon,  steak, sunny side up, mushrooms and a buttered toast as aside dish with extra jam which went nicely with my Yazoo chocolate drink. It was lovely, filling and satisfying.

I also visited a private museum called Ellys Manor House,  filled with English Renaissance Wall Paintings albeit restricted photography. I got a postcard remniscent of the  image below, which was really nice.

Lincolnshire was an amazing place to visit, a laid back community fit for raising kids with a sturdy agrarian people who contribute food to the world.

It’d be a pleasure to go back!
